Oracle and SUN Sun Microsystems has launched a new business unit to sell its Sparc processors, a return to an idea it had dropped years ago. David Yen, currently executive vice president of storage but previously in charge of Sun's Sparc work, will lead the new group and retain his executive VP status, the company said Thursday.

The economies of scale have made it impossible for Sun to be able to compete with Intel in the processor business. Intel has the entire market range from embedded to massive covered, and they've got better competitors than Sun against them in every market.
