Should EMC Buy Sun?

Thursday Dec 4th 2008 by Enterprise Storage Staff

One commentator thinks the storage giant could be the best hope for Sun Microsystems.

Could EMC (NYSE: EMC) be the best match for Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ: JAVA)? One commentator thinks so.

With $2.6 billion on its balance sheet and a massive cost-cutting plan that could save the company $700 million or more a year, Sun doesn't appear to be in imminent danger of going out of business.

But with turnaround efforts so far failing to produce much in the way of traction — with the notable exception of Sun's open storage efforts — the company's future continues to be debated.

While it's hard to imagine the combination of a proprietary storage vendor with a company that has staked its future on open source, the idea is nonetheless an intriguing one.
