High-end server market still IBM's to lose and, instead of going head-to-head with its rival, analysts reckon Oracle is better off focusing on promoting integrated products to turn around ailing Sun hardware business.
Oracle has released version 11 of Solaris, the Unix-based operating system the company acquired when it purchased Sun Microsystems in 2010.The software, made generally available on Wednesday, was billed by Oracle in a statement as "the first cloud operating system".
Server sales continued to surge amid a strong corporate upgrade cycle. Global server market revenue jumped 12.1 percent in the first quarter to $11.9 billion from a year ago, according to IDC data.
The company has launched a Sparc-based Solaris server option for its Exalogic cloud-in-a-box system, plus Supercluster, a product suite for running Oracle Real Application Clusters
Oracle today delivered on its commitment to the SPARC platform, announcing a SPARC Solaris-based model of its Exalogic Elastic cloud system, the so-called cloud-in-the-box system that was announced earlier this year at Oracle OpenWorld.The company also announced a complete refresh of the SPARC server line and a new version of Solaris.

Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison opened this week's Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco with details on the Exalogic Elastic Cloud. The system, built on 360 64-bit x86 processor cores, is interconnected with an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.
Oracle has delivered an updated version of its Secure Global Desktop that offers more browser flexibility, enhanced availability and seamless integration with VDI platforms.Oracle Secure Global Desktop -- one of Oracle's three desktop virtualization offerings that came from Sun (and was originally developed by Tarantella) -- provides server-hosted application and server-hosted desktop access.
An end has come to a major part of Sun Microsystems' attempt to transform Solaris from a proprietary version of Unix to an open-source operating system built by others, too.
One of Sun Microsystems' ambitious dreams, a vibrant open-source community for the Solaris operating system to rival the Linux collective, is in serious danger of evaporating in the Oracle era.
The company has released a raft of fixes, many for Sun and Solaris products, as part of its quarterly patch cycle
IBM and HP are in a duel to be the favored enterprise server provider, but there are many other players to keep things interesting. For instance, Dell is a solid No. 3 and Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems should keep the server market interesting. Cisco also aims to be a server player. A recent trend: Creating application optimized servers.
It's clear following Oracle's fiscal third quarter earnings call that CEO Larry Ellison has two enemies of choice: SAP and IBM. However, Oracle's prospects are much more believable vs. SAP. It remains to be seen whether Sun can tackle the high-end server market and wrest control from IBM.
In the short term - meaning tomorrow- the major changes at Sun: a renewed focus on Solaris/SPARC, make to order mfg with direct shipping, more emphasis on Sun Ray, customer focused ready-to-rock appliance computing - are all good news. Look a bit deeper, however, and the handwriting on the wall says much of what Java brings to the server is going, going, gone.
Ever since Oracle made overtures to buy Sun (and get MySQL in the process), Microsoft's been more of a MySQL foe than friend. Given that context, it's probably not too surprising that Microsoft is readying a tool designed to help customers migrate from MySQL to SQL Server and/or SQL Azure, Microsoft's cloud-hosted version of its database
Global server revenue fell 17.3 percent in the third quarter, but sales were up sequentially for the first time since the fourth quarter of 2008, according to IDC data. However, Sun Microsystems' sales continued to fall 35 percent as the company lies in limbo as regulators ponder a deal with Oracle.
All top-five server vendors globally saw declines in revenue and shipment in the third quarter of 2009, according to Gartner
Sun Microsystems clocks lowest revenue and shipment among global top 5 server vendors for third quarter 2009, says Gartner.
All top 5 server vendors globally saw declines in revenue and shipment in the third quarter of 2009, with Sun Microsystems registering the biggest fall, according to latest figures from Gartner.
The irony is that Oracle has advanced MySQL, lost money in the process, and helped its competitors -- all at the same time. When Oracle buys Sun and controls MySQL the gift (other than to Microsoft SQL Server) keeps on giving as the existential threat to RDBs is managed by Redwood Shores.
Microsoft officials highlighted the company's wave of enterprise server products during the kick-off keynotes at the company's TechEd Europe conference on November 9. Among this wave is Windows Server 2008 R2 (WS2008R2) -- the server complement to Windows 7, which has a lot of unsung features that could be of interest to IT pros, if only they knew about them, company officials said.
