Apparently Larry Ellison didn’t get the memo about the new Oracle Database Appliance, unveiled yesterday, being based on Intel processors
Oracle is looking to further grow its revenues and income this year by moving away from the x86 hardware businesses and focusing on hardware that leverages Oracle's intellectual property.
"I don't care if our commodity x86 business goes to zero," Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said during the company's earnings call with analysts. "We don't make any money selling those things. We have no interest in selling other people's IP, and commodity x86 includes Intel IP and Microsoft IP."
