Oracle needs to sling its hook
The maker of jolly expensive printer ink HP has been on the blower to us about Oracle's claims that both it and Intel know of a plan to kill off the Itanium chip.

Dave Donatelli, executive vice president and general manager, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking HP told Fudzilla that it will continue the development and innovation of Itanium-based Integrity server platforms with its HP-UX operating system using a roadmap that extends more than 10 years. He added that HP will continue to support customers running existing versions of Oracle software on Itanium-based Integrity servers, both existing and future platforms, during the same timeframe.

Donatelli hit out at Oracle's anti-Itanium antics saying that the outfit was showing a pattern of anti-customer behaviour of late as it tries to sort out its failing Sun server business.  “HP believes in fair and honest competition. Competition is good for customers, innovation and the marketplace. We are shocked that Oracle would put enterprises and governments at risk while costing them hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity in a shameless gambit to limit fair competition,” he said.

HP pointed out that it had moved ahead into second position in the Unix market while Sun lost share and fell back into third since Oracle announced it would acquire Sun in April of 2009.
