Oracle finally got rid of Sun!

via:博客园     time:2017/9/6 9:01:30     readed:2453


News from the former Sun community shows that,Rumors of January(Oracle layoffs 450) became a reality, last Friday,Oracle has laid off the core employees of the Solaris and SPARC teams, Choose this time (US Labor Day Labor Day before the weekend) may wish that the news was ignored by the public.

To be sure, this means that for these products will only be left skeleton-level maintenance, in particular,Solaris 12 is also canceledThe This is a typical Oracle-style "silent ending silent EOL", no matter how they claim to fulfill the terms of the contract to Fujitsu and other customers.

With the hardware out, I guess this is the last Oracle acquired by the acquisition of Sun assets. After the acquisition of Sun Microsystems,Oracle's Ellison is relentless to Sun's management, And to maximize the use of its opportunities. So, what are the assets of Sun in the hands of Oracle? I am not very concerned about Oracle's business, but I can see from the following:

  • Java is called "jewel" on the crown, but it's bought Java SEReal reasonIn fact, trying to sue Google compensation 8 billion dollars, but also twice lost.
  • Ellison saidJava is the key to the success of middleware, But now Java EE is preparingTo an open source foundationThe
  • Oracle criticized Sun for making money from Java (ignoring the fact that Java made money in the hardware market between 1996 and 2000) and put forward a deal that would not generate revenue at allFree modelThe
  • theyEmbrace NetBeansAnd now it was donated to the Apache Foundation.
  • CorrectMySQL security fixesOf the bureaucracy led to part of the community members and MySQL founder Monty created MariaDB branch, and the new branch has been sufficient to supporta companyThe
  • Ellison saidRebuild Sun's hardware business,butThe person in charge has left a month ago, While the rest of the staff is part of the layoffs.
  • Despite Sun's former bossMcNealy understands that Solaris is only open source to win the market, Oracle said that you are right & rdquo ;, then the SolarisKilled itThe The result is that the layoffs of the weekend - and this in January this year, there have been rumors.
  • Hudson handled misconduct, Means that its CI business can only follow the CloudBees from Hubson branch from behind Jenkins.
  • Oracle has abandoned Sun's identity management project, and now Forgerock has used it to support a worth of 500 million dollars in business, for those Oracle does not care about customer service.
  • Oracle decidedCancel Sun Cloud, And removed the cloud services in Solaris, and now is the world of cloud services.
  • Oracle renamed StarOffice, thenAnnounced a cloud versionBut no eggs. Feeling the project will go to the end, suffered a harsh treatment of the community decided to do another cooker LibreOffice.
  • Only VirtualBox looks okay.

Maybe this is not the real reason for Sun's failure & mdash; & mdash;It took too long on open source Solaris, And in 2000-2002 trying to use the market-oriented way to replace Sun's usual engineering-led approach - Ellison accused those who bear the responsibility to turn the tide, the remaining survivors of the leaders McNealy, Zander, Tolliver and their The team. Ellison never understood Schwartz's groundbreaking approach, but wasBlog in ridiculewithCancel all the ongoing "scientific projects" and ", Remove the partner channel, trace the source open source community.

With this week HPE will give up the old productSold to Micro Focus, To take care of these products on the contrary, Oracle's practice is more brutal. OracleSaid it will "revive Sun brand & rdquo;, But in fact they kill the product than Sun management has been managed to be more & mdash; & mdash; no doubt that this is "the art of trading".

Today, and many former Sun colleagues, this thing makes me very sad.
