Oracle Corp. will use new hardware to attack onetime partner Hewlett-Packard Co. in the market for server systems, said Oracle Chief Executive Larry Ellison

The jibe Thursday came as Oracle announced new computers based on the Sparc chip technology developed by Sun Microsystems—which Oracle acquired in January for $7.4 billion—as well as updates to other products. Some Sun customers initially had worried that Oracle would stop investing in the chips.


Mark Hurd, who surprisingly resigned last month as CEO of HP, has joined Oracle as co-president, the company announced Monday.
