    The purchase of Sun by Oracle is not really recent history. That deal was completed more than a year ago.

    As for the exact motivations, you need to ask this to Oracle's senior management.

    But the general trend has been for Oracle to cover the full spectrum of IT services: upwards by purchasing a vast number of generic and specialized solutions (major names include Peoplesoft and Siebel), horizontally to expand the tools (BEA is a good example), and downwards into infrastructure: first operating system (Oracle Enterprise Linux) and virtualization, and finally servers (Sun).

    The first result of the Sun acquisition is the series of database machines called Exadata that come pre-configured with processing and data-serving nodes and storage, as well as operating system and database. Other offerings are the Exalogic application server machines (that embed Weblogic).
