Oracle: Employees must go – Solaris is probably ahead of the

Monday, September 4th, 2017 | Gadgets

At Oracle, employees must go. In a Twitter post, the user Simon Phipps (@webmink) reports about the release of developers who have worked on the Solaris operating system. A forenthread on the online portal Thelayoff also points to the end of Solaris itself. Actually, the product should be passed as version 11.next.

An anonymous user in the thread wrote: "I've heard of a Solaris developer that S11.4 could never come." Another user replies: "Everyone in the Solaris team is already looking for a new job." With the end of Sparc, the focus on Solaris 11.4 has already become unimportant anyway, it says. Sparc is Oracle's own processor, designed to handle large amounts of data, such as complex database queries, and strong multi-threading.
Oracles hardware business continues to decline
In 2017 it is so badly ordered for Oracles Hardwesection. In the fourth quarter of 2017, sales decreased by 13 percent year-on-year. Overall, the share of total sales is only 10 percent.

According to the quarterly report, license sales with on-premise software such as Solaris also fell by 3 percent. However, the report does not show how much per cent of sales can be attributed to Solaris alone.

The situation is different for Oracle's cloud offerings. Although the share of total turnover is still at 13%, this sector is growing rapidly at 60%. This also highlights the change in corporate strategy to cloud offerings. Overall, the company generated a net profit of 3.2 billion US dollars. This is 15 percent more than last year.
Oracle does not yet have an official statement on the dismissal of its employees. According to the Bloomberg news service, the company has hired 5,000 cloud specialists.
