Court rejects Oracle’s motion to dismiss Itanium suit

HP sued Oracle when it stopped making software for HP servers

Hewlett-Packard Co. announced Monday that a court has rejected Oracle Corp.’s motion to dismiss a suit centered on Oracle’s decision to stop making software to support HP servers.

The suit dates back to June 2011, when HP sued Oracle over its Itanium microprocessor, which HP uses in many of its products. Last year, Oracle announced that it would no longer develop software for use with Itanium, after Intel Corp. reportedly indicated that it would abandon development of the chip in favor of its x86 Xeon microprocessor. Intel later denied these claims.
