    • Yeah sure dream on...


      But Ellison says shrinking revenues are because he's getting rid of Sun's low-margin, commodity x86 server and storage products.

      Employees inside the company tell Business Insider that those selling commodity systems have been targeted for layoffs—which makes business sense if Oracle doesn't want to be in that business anymore.

      Instead, Ellison is looking to sell high-margin "engineered systems" designed to run specific Oracle software products. These are known as the Exa line of hardware products and include Exadata, Exalogic, and Exalytics servers. It also includes the Sparc SuperCluster, a high-end, general-purpose system for running databases and apps.
