HP Wins Court Ruling in Itanium Litigation
Contract requires Oracle to port its software to Itanium-based servers

On August 1, the U.S. court issued a proposed ruling on the first phase of HP’s trial against Oracle and confirmed the existence of a contract between HP and Oracle that requires Oracle to continue to port its software products to HP’s platforms, including Integrity.

This is a very positive result for you and HP. We remain committed to our partners, our 140,000 customers who run Oracle software and to our long-term mission-critical server roadmap, including Integrity, HP-UX, OpenVMS, and NonStop as well as our new investments in x86, Windows, and Linux. Similarly, Intel has repeatedly reinforced its ongoing commitment to the Itanium roadmap.

For additional information on the proposed ruling in the ongoing litigation with Oracle relating to the Intel® Itanium® platform, please read the press release. You can also read the proposed ruling on the court website.

Please reach out to your customers to let them know about this exciting news and answer any questions they may have.
