European Commission Approves Oracle-Sun Acquisition


Next Wednesday, January 27 2010, Oracle is hosting an event to discuss how Sun and Oracle fit together.  I expect we'll hear them actually talk about the two companies being together, now that the European Commission approved the proposed acquisition today.

There are a couple of steps before the acqusition is final: China and Russia have to approve, but I expect that will happen almost immediately.  Once that happens, the final machinery will crank up within days, if not hours.  By this time next week, I'm sure I'll know whether I have a job at Oracle/Sun.  (I'm not worried; I'd just like to know for sure, one way or another)

Check out the European Commission's press release on the matter: I think they took a while to decide, but they looked at the right set of issues as far as I'm concerned.  Also, the press release mentions PostgreSQL as a viable open source alternative to the MySQL database, which I think shows they did their due diligence.  I know that PostgreSQL and MySQL have different strengths and aren't necessarily interchangeable, but it's also important to know that the open source DB world isn't monocultural: it's not all about MySQL.

Finally, the waiting is coming to an end!  I can't tell you how much of a relief that is.

It was a good move for oracle but I don’t think sun earned much from this deal. They lost many of their business clients and oracle earned many new ones. That is what actually happened. Sun lost their trademark to oracle. custom countertops

My own supposition, in any case, is that MySQL is more qualified for web applications and entryways. Not at all like databses like Oracle and DB2, the volume of information that MySQL can deal with is restricted particularly when we are discussing the sort of information that are put away in ERP frameworks.
