5708303 story Oracle To Sell Sun's Hardware Business To HP? 76 Posted by ScuttleMonkey on Friday August 28, 2009 @04:25PM from the playing-hard-to-get dept. Underholdning writes "With the DOJ approving Oracle's Sun buyout, the question arises what Oracle might want to do with Sun's hardware business. It's no secret that what Oracle wanted was the software part. Now The Inquirer is running a story claiming that Oracle will sell the hardware business of Sun to HP. This will give Oracle a juicy check while HP can increase its services. Larry Ellison denies that it will take place, but a source for CNN claims otherwise."
