Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been awarded $3 billion in a lawsuit it brought against Oracle five years ago over a now largely forgotten Intel processor.
The two sides had been fighting over Oracle’s decision to stop developing versions of its software for Intel’s Itanium, a server chip that never found much success in the market.
After the jury verdict Thursday, Oracle said it planned to appeal.
It’s Oracle’s second big court loss in as many months. In May, a jury rejected Oracle’s claim that Google infringed its copyright when it copied parts of Java into Android. Oracle was seeking nearly $9 billion in that case. It plans to appeal that outcome, too.
