LXer: Can Oracle make sense of Sun's hardware?

Published at LXer:

When Oracle Corp. agreed to buy Sun Microsystems Inc. today, it took a leap into the hardware realm. And so the obvious question is: Can the software-centric database and applications vendor succeed with Sun's hardware business? "I'll hand it to Larry Ellison: That man can shop," said Laura DiDio, an analyst at Information Technology Intelligence Corp., a research and consulting firm in Boston. "This deal is very, very complementary for Oracle. It gives them instant credibility with hardware, virtualization, open source, storage and cloud computing."

Hardware has pretty much become a commodity and Oracle would be wise to dump Sun's hardware divisions, or at least set them up to sink or swim on their own.
