Oracle and Microsoft Partner in the Cloud (and the Sky Hasn’t Fallen)


These days, when the compromise-hating politicians with extremist ideologies in the US Congress are again threatening to bring the US economy (and perhaps that of the entire world) to the brink of credit default, maybe even a financial systems meltdown, it is astounding to see fierce IT archrivals finding common ground.

Lowering Your IT Costs with Oracle Database 11g Release 2


New versions of database software and operating systems (OSs) come out regularly.

Sun to Make Solaris Source Code Available


Sun Microsystems Inc. plans to make the source code of its Solaris operating system freely available to the public.

Although Sun denies it, this appears to be (at least in part) a direct shot across Linux's bow. Sun has set no timeframe as yet, so their commitment level to the open-source path is still unclear. This move should increase market growth slightly, primarily for Sun, but also for the general Unix market. Sun's intent is to get mindshare, from which market Read More
