 Oracle Corporation


We are pleased to announce that Oracle has completed its acquisition of Sun
Microsystems and Sun is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Oracle. With this
news, we want to reiterate our commitment to deliver complete, open and
integrated systems that help our customers improve the performance,
reliability and security of their IT infrastructure. We would also like to
thank the many customers that have supported us throughout the acquisition

There is no doubt that this combination transforms the IT industry. With
the addition of servers, storage, SPARC processors, the Solaris operating
system, Java, and the MySQL database to Oracle's portfolio of database,
middleware, and business and industry applications, we plan to engineer and
deliver open and integrated systems - from applications to disk - where all
the pieces fit and work together out of the box. 

Performance levels will be unmatched. Oracle's software already runs faster
on Sun SPARC/Solaris than on any other server or operating system. With Sun
as a part of Oracle, each layer of the stack will be engineered to further
improve performance, reliability and manageability so that IT will be more
predictable, more supportable, and more secure. Customers will benefit as
their system performance goes up and their system integration and
management costs go down. 

In addition, our open standards-based technology will give customers
choice. Customers can purchase our fully integrated systems, or easily
integrate our best-of-breed technologies with their existing environments.
Our open technology also enables customers to take full advantage of third
party innovations. Oracle also plans to extend its partner specialization
program to include Sun technologies to better enable partners to deliver
differentiated and value-added solutions to customers.

As always, our primary goal is 100% customer satisfaction. We are dedicated
to delivering without interruption the quality of support and service that
you have come to expect from Oracle and Sun, and more. Oracle plans to
enhance Sun customer support by improving support access, offering better
interoperability support between Oracle and Sun products and delivering
services in more local languages. Support procedures for your existing Sun
and Oracle products are unchanged, so for now you should continue to use
the same channels you've been using. Customers can continue to purchase
products from Sun in the same way they did prior to the acquisition. We
will communicate any changes to this through regular channels.

We are very excited about this combination and look forward to delivering
to you increased innovation through accelerated investment in Sun's
hardware and software technologies such as SPARC, Solaris, Java, and MySQL.
If you weren't able to join the live event on January 27 where we, along
with Larry Ellison and other executives from Oracle and Sun outlined how
this powerful combination will transform the IT industry, you are welcome
