LXer: Red Hat CEO Isn't Worried About Oracle Solaris

Published at LXer:

Red Hat CEO Whitehurst noted that Red Hat has yet to lose a major customer to Oracle and that all of its top 25 deals each quarter for the last five quarters have renewed. According to Whitehurst, the only major Red Hat customer that has not renewed due to Oracle's Linux in the last couple of years was Oracle itself. "I think with the addition of Solaris, I think it would be an even harder sell of something that's already proven pretty unsuccessful for them," Whitehurst said. "I wouldn't want to be the sales guy compensated on selling Oracle Unbreakable Linux."
