Oracle – Not One to Rest on its Laurels

Looks like more acquisition news coming from Oracle. Hot on the heels of their industry shifting acquisition of Sun, Oracle just announced the purchase of Virtual Iron. The deal is expected to close this summer.

Launched in 2001 as Katana Technology, Virtual Iron is a virtualization software maker. The company’s main target has been small and medium-sized enterprises.

What does this mean for top three in the virtualization software industry? VMWare, Citrix, and Microsoft will definitely feel the pressure as Oracle will be benefiting from Virtual Iron’s expertise and resource management tools.
