Oracle has shut down support for Sun's virtualisation product lines in another move that sees the IT giant integrate the historic platform into its own offerings.
The company said that it would no longer be supporting various Sun software lines in an effort to further integrate Sun products into its own software lines.
Oracle said when it announced the move: “In an effort to more tightly align Oracle's future desktop virtualisation portfolio investments with Oracle Corporation's overall core business strategy, we have ended new feature development for Oracle Sun Ray Software (SRS), Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) software, Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC) software, and Oracle Sun Ray Client hardware (3, 3i, and 3 Plus)."
The company said that it will continue to support both products though their lifecycle despite the decision to shut down support. The platforms were among the brands Oracle acquired when it purchased Sun Microsystems in 2009.
Oracle added that it would continue to support the Sun products and transition users to the new offerings.
“Going forward, Oracle's desktop portfolio investments will be focused on continued development and new enhancements to both Oracle Secure Global Desktop and Oracle VM VirtualBox software,” the company said.
