Big Oracle Sun event today

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Starting at noon ET today, Oracle will kick off a five-hour event in California that will outline its plans for Sun Microsystems’ technology. Last week, Oracle received approval from the European Commission to buy Sun, a deal estimated to be worth $7.4 billion and one of the biggest in IT in recent years.

I’ll be looking to get details on the following Oracle Sun technologies: UltraSparc, Solaris, Sun’s x86 hardware, Sun’s Modular Datacenter (formerly Blackbox), Sun’s cloud computing (which it announced a month before Oracle’s announcement to buy Sun), and what Oracle will do with Sun’s physical data centers.

My fellow reporters on other sites —,, — will be tackling other angles of the acquisition.
