Oracle Plans to Keep Sun's Storage Business

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has no plans to sell off Sun Microsystems' data storage business — or any of the company's other hardware product lines.

"We are definitely not going to exit the hardware business," Ellison told Reuters in an e-mail interview published late today. "If a company designs both hardware and software, it can build much better systems than if they only design the software. That's why Apple's iPhone is so much better than Microsoft phones."
