The Sun acquisition is finally completed. Oracle has also been busy investing in Life Sciences and Healthcare companies recently. After Sun, it appears the Warriors are next. Everybody always wonders what Larry Ellison is up to, but sometimes the bigger question is why. Whatever system he uses it works. The company is adding jobs, which is a good thing. Sun also has a line of products and services in healthcare.
“At a public event held at Oracle's (ORCL 23.86, -0.02, -0.08%) Redwood Shores, Calif., headquarters, Ellison responded to a plea from an audience member that he buy the Warriors by responding: "I'm trying, I'm trying."
Tuesday was an historic day in the IT industry with the completion of Oracle’s acquisition of Sun.
World Wide owes a great deal to Sun. Over 15 years ago, Sun was the first major manufacturer to partner with us as a very, very small reseller. Like most long-term relationships, we’ve had our ups and downs but through the years our partnership has grown and prospered. Today, WWT is one of Sun’s largest partners serving the federal government.
This partnering approach which values technology specializations creates tremendous new opportunities for WWT. We continue to accelerate our investment and focus on specializations especially related to virtualization, blades/servers and data center networking and, just recently, WWT received Oracle’s Exadata certification.
