A little hardware banter between Oracle and IBM

While yesterday’s webcast was to outline Oracle’s future plans for Sun Microsystems, it also included a flurry of quotes by Larry Ellison attacking IBM. With Oracle now being a software-hardware company, who else but IBM would they want to belittle? It’s interesting, almost flying to old-Sun defense, Ellison threw out hardware comments like:

“You would’ve thought IBM, because they do hardware and software, would’ve come out with a database machine many years ago, it’s so obvious.”


“…It’s just that Oracle runs on modern computing hardware.”

Do you think Ellison is taking this hardware game serious? Visit Database wars: IBM, Oracle’s Ellison trade zingers to get an IBM perspective from Bernie Spang.
