Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has remade the company via acquisitions. Oracle has acquired a bevy of companies such as Siebel Systems, PeopleSoft, BEA Systems and others to become a significant applications player.

Future cloud apps won't need humans

Lew Tucker, vice president and chief technology officer of cloud computing at Sun Microsystems, foresees applications that are entirely self-sufficient.

Future cloud apps won’t need humans

Lew Tucker, vice president and chief technology officer of cloud computing at Sun Microsystems, foresees applications that are entirely self-sufficient.

OK, OK, we've all heard a gazillion and one things this week about why Nehalem, er the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, is like, a total breakthrough in terms of energy efficiency. Intel calls the chip its most revolutionary product in the past 15 years (shades of Pentium) and all manner of software companies, including Sun Microsystems, are falling all over themselves to optimize their operating systems or applications for the platform.

P570 vs T5220

There aren't many public benchmarks that allow you to compare an IBM p570 to Sun's T2 series gear - but one that does, a business applications benchmark officiated by SPEC.ORG, shows Sun to have about a 1.67 x speed advantage - while other data suggest a six times price advantage.

MySQL Vs. Unify Data Server: What might have been

If Sun had taken my advice to buy Unify Corporation as a going concern in 2003 they'd have spent less than a hundred million so far, own a big new Sun Ray applications development market, and have been able to hand $900 million of the cash they spent on MySQL directly to shareholders instead.
