Oracle Completes Sun Acquisition

Oracle has closed its $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems this week, after approval from a variety of international organizations including the EU.

With this acquisition, Oracle adds storage, SPARC processors, the Solaris operating system, Java, and the MySQL database to their portfolio of database, middleware, and business applications.

After the merger, Oracle plans to increase SPARC funding, Solaris development, and MySQL while integrating Oracle software into Sun hardware and doubling service and support staff for SPARC/Solaris servers.
