Is this true? If so what's Oracle's game plan? They just buy Virtual Iron for a virtualization management. Appear to have a clue since they are buying Sun with a huge virtualization skill set and product line. Then this info comes along?
In a letter to Virtual Iron's sales partners, Oracle says it "will suspend development of existing Virtual Iron products and will suspend delivery of orders to new customers." And in a second letter to a partner speaking with The Reg, the company says it will not allow partners to sell new licenses to anyone - including existing customers - after the end of this month.
So is Oracle's plan just to cannibalize Sun & Virtual Iron's code and forsake all the customers they bought?
Makes me pretty sad since I'm a big Sun fan with OpenSolaris and I have the fear that they will do the same thing there.
