Is the Sun setting on Oracle's Solaris business?

Julia Talevski | Sept. 7, 2017
Reports of redundancies within Oracle's Solaris and SPARC teams raise questions over the future of Oracle offerings.

HPE completed the US$8.8 billion spin-merger of its software business with the UK's Micro Focus this month.

Included in the bundle that has been offloaded are HPE’s businesses focusing on application delivery management, big data, enterprise security, information management and governance, and IT operations management.

“Micro Focus expects to improve the margin on HPE's software assets by approximately 20 percentage points by the end of the third full financial year following the closing of the transaction, while also investing in key growth areas like big data and security,” HPE said when the deal was first announced.

The latest reports of redundancies in Oracle's ranks come roughly eight months after Oracle reportedly laid off around 450 workers in Santa Clara, California, from its hardware systems division.
