Oracle is moving fast – it took them only ten days to react to my article …and they decided to purchase Tangosol. Congratulation, Cameron, well deserved!
On a serious note, things like this do not happen in ten days. It took Cameron and his team years to build a robust distributed cache offering, after that he had to build a solid clientelle, and only then Tangosol started appearing on Oracles radars.
Anyway, it ‘s an exiting news for Tangosol. Hopefully the funds for their JavaOne party will not be eliminated as a result of this acquisition.
