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.
