Oracle is laying off 1,800 employees, including software developers who worked on the Solaris operating system and 450 staff members from the SPARC hardware systems division. The majority of those getting the axe are related to business units formerly associated with Sun Microsystems. Oracle acquired Sun for $7.4 billion in 2010. Oracle has since re-focused its business on cloud computing.

"The Santa Clara facility is not closing as part of this reduction in force," an Oracle spokesperson said. "Rather, Oracle is refocusing its Hardware Systems business, and for that reason, has decided to lay off certain of its employees in the Hardware Systems Division."
