HP partners to Oracle… “What happened to customer first?”

I agree that Oracle overstepped their bounds in cancelling all support for Itanium. It was clearly done to clear out HP-UX and make room for their Exa-xxx products. Nevertheless, HP has some responsiblilty is becoming so heavily reliant on Oracle as THE database provider for Itanium systems. If there had been more of an effort to partner with IBM DB2 or Sybase at an earlier stage, Oracle would have thought twice.

Itanium is dead. When are you going to port to x86?
