Tip of the Hat: The state of Oracle's hardware business
The neglected business unit is growing again; Investors Business Daily's Pete Barlas provides a look at the numbers
Computerworld - Except for a brief period after buying server maker Sun Microsystems five years ago, Oracle's hardware business has been largely overlooked.
The long struggling -- and declining -- business recorded it's first-ever year-over-year quarterly increase when hardware sales grew by 8% in the third quarter ended Feb. 28.
If it continues, hardware success could help the company in its plan to sell servers running Oracle business and database software, which analysts say is a significant potential market.
Computerworld offers a Tip of the Hat to Investors Business Daily reporter Pete Barlas for a comprehensive look at the state of the long-invisible business, and why it could continue on its current growth path.
The story, Oracle Hardware Business Seen Finally Turning Corner, looks at which products are contributing to the growth, and where the company stands in the market. Barlas also provides insight on where Oracle's future hardware revenue growth will likely come from.
