Hewlett-Packard filed a complaint against Oracle

The U.S. computer maker Hewlett-Packard (HP) announced on Wednesday, June 15, he filed a complaint against his former partner Oracle. HP asked to continue to develop software for its products running with a chip from Intel, Itanium. The Itanium family of microprocessors, developed jointly by several computer manufacturers and for servers and other high performance computing systems, appeared for the first time in 2001.

This is a new point of contention between the two groups whose relations have deteriorated since the ouster of former HP CEO Mark Hurd, in August last year, has since become one of the highest Oracle executives. "HP believes that the declaration of Oracle's March 22, in which he announced his decision to stop development of all future software on Itanium platform, violated its legal obligations to HP and over 140,000 clients common to both groups, "says HP in a statement.

"We think it is an illegal attempt to force customers using the HP Itanium platform moving platforms from Oracle," the group. This complaint follows a formal notice sent by HP at Oracle last week about this. In March, Oracle said it had made its decision after "many conversations with the leadership of Intel." "The leadership of Intel has clearly indicated that it was his strategic focus on its x86 microprocessor and qu'Itanium nearing its end of life", had then justified Oracle, noting that competitors like Microsoft and Red Hat had already ceased to develop new programs for Itanium.
