HP CEO Apotheker Slams Oracle for Quitting Itanium

Tuesday Mar 29th 2011 by Datamation.com Staff

HP's CEO says his company will continue to put customers first.

CRN: At HP's Americas Partner Conference Monday night, CEO Leo Apotheker spoke out forcefully about Oracle's decision to stop supporting Intel's Itanium line of servers. "From my perspective, it's a rather clumsy attempt by Oracle to try and prop up a failing and deteriorating Sun server business," Apotheker said. "It is an anticompetitive decision, it is self interested and it is to the endangerment of customers."

He added that HP will continue to support Itanium for at least 10 more years and that "HP will do what we always do, which is to put the best interest of the customer first."
