Itanium: Slip/Sliding Away.

White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Oct 10, 2012
Type:  White Paper
Length:  8 pages

Oracle has followed the trend of other major ISVs and terminated further software development for the Itanium platform. Looking at the decline in revenue of HP's Itanium-based servers, combined with loss of support by Microsoft, Red Hat, VMware and Fujitsu (in addition to Oracle), it's clear that the Itanium ecosystem is collapsing quickly. Due to HP Itanium's decline to date, Microsoft and Oracle have already pulled out to avoid investing any more to support a platform that will soon be obsolete. It's expected that other ISVs will continue to follow in suite. Read the white paper to learn more.
