HP, Oracle battle it out

HP has filed a California lawsuit claiming a breach in agreement regarding a chip dispute

Hewlett Packard Co. alleges that over a period of eight months, “Oracle has gone from an arm-in-arm ‘partnership’ with Hewlett-Packard to bitter antagonist.”

In March, Oracle Corp. made an announcement that it would no longer support its database software on Hewlett-Packard computer servers that use the Itanium chip. HP said Oracle used strong-arm tactics to coerce customers into replacing their HP servers with Sun servers.
