Submission + - Oracle, NetApp drop ZFS patent suit (

An anonymous reader writes: It seems Oracle and NetApp has kissed and made up over the ZFS patent lawsuit. Before Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems, NetApp sued Sun claiming ZFS infringed on its patents. Sun the later sued NetApp back. From today all is forgotten and Oracle and NetApp are friends. NetApp CEO Tom Georgens even said the two companies have shared a "common vision" focused on providing solutions that reduce IT cost and complexity. Both companies now want collaboration between them to continue.
