Oracle To Increase Investment In SPARC and Solaris

The IT community has recently questionedwhat Oracle will do with Sun hardware if and when Oracle's acquisition  of Sun closes. And it seems that speculation about the future of SPARC hardware has been common among commenters for years.

Thatsaid, it seems newsworthy that Oracle is going out of their way withsome aggressive marketing directed at IBM to state clearly their plans to put more money than Sun does now into SPARC and Solaris."MySQL is not mentioned in this ad, perhaps because (as Matt Asay speculates) the EU is looking closely into that aspect of the proposed acquisition.
