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:
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.
