Speculation that HP will acquire Sun’s hardware

Even though Oracle had promised to retain the Sun hardware portfolio to make highly optimized database “appliances”, its looking like there may be a better home for them at HP.

Oracle is likely to sell sun’s hardware business to hp – The Inquirer

HP, on the other hand, wants Sun’s hardware to boost its services business. HP bought outsourcing player EDS. EDS was Sun’s best customer. By owning Sun technology, HP will improve its profit margins on many EDS deals.
