Oracle and Sun Reaffirm Their Relationship

Java, NetBeans IDE, Offering Oracle Databases and Business Applications On Sun's Products Will Be Focus Areas

The two leaders are focusing on three main areas:
• Collaboration on Java technology, with Oracle's continued commitment to Java technology for the next 10 years
• Oracle's endorsement of the NetBeans IDE, which will fuel innovation through open source software and community-based development
• Offering the leading real-world performance of Oracle databases and business applications on Sun's hot x64 processor-based servers, multicore UltraSPARC processor-based servers, and storage systems

Several factors are driving the expanded relationship between the companies. With more than 3.6 million registered licenses, the Solaris 10 Operating System (Solaris 10 OS) has tremendous momentum--as do Sun's refreshed server lines, including the x64 AMD Opteron processor-based servers, and the recently launched multicore Sun Fire T1000 and Sun Fire T2000 servers with the CoolThreads technology. Oracle brings enterprise application and database strength to the table, as well as a new pricing model for multicore systems.
