HP Demands Oracle Support Itanium
Page 1 of 1
Back in March, Oracle publicly announced that it was discontinuing support of Oracle applications running on HP's Intel Itanium powered servers.
Now, nearly three months later, HP is pushing back, claiming Oracle has a legal obligation to continue supporting Itanium.
"HP believes that Oracle's March 22 statement to discontinue all future software development on the Itanium platform violates legally binding commitments Oracle has made to HP and the more than 140,000 shared HP-Oracle customers," HP said in a statement. "Further, we believe that this is an unlawful attempt to force customers from HP Itanium platforms to Oracles own platforms."
