Oracle To Invest In Sun Hardware, Cut Sun Staff

There's been much speculation as to what Oracle plans to do with Sun once the all-but-certain acquisition is complete.

According to separate reports on InfoWorld, Oracle has disclosed plans to continue investing in Sun's multithreaded UltraSparc T family of processors, which are used in its Niagara servers, and the M series server family, based on the Sparc64 processors developed by Fujitsu.

However, Larry Ellison has reportedly said that once the Sun acquisition is complete, Oracle will hire 2,000 new employees more people than it expects to cut from the Sun workforce. Oracle will present its plans for Sun to the public Wednesday.
