Mark Hurd Pitches New Oracle Data Servers at Annual Confab
The new servers boost storage capacity while speeding up data processing, the Journal said, citing Hurd's keynote speech at the event. Hurd said he was "thrilled" to be with the company, though didn't mention HP, according to the newspaper.
Hurd stepped down as the HP chief last month after he was accused of sexual harassment by a contractor and a resulting investigation found that he made unauthorized payments to the contractor.
Last week, Oracle said its fiscal first-quarter profit surged 20% as the world's No. 2 software company to Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) generated higher revenue from a jump in software-license sales.
