Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has no plans to sell off Sun Microsystems’ data storage business ‚Äî 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.”
