Oracle, NetApp agree to settle patent litigation

Storage vendor NetApp said on Thursday it has reached an agreement with Oracle to dismiss patent litigation stemming from a 2007 suit NetApp filed against Sun Microsystems, which.Oracle acquired earlier this year. Terms were not disclosed.

The litigation centres on Sun's ZFS file system. NetApp's suit had demanded a declaration that it was not in violation of three Sun patents, as well as a ruling that ZFS infringed on seven of its own. Sun later filed a countersuit against NetApp.

Oracle and NetApp "have shared a common vision focused on providing solutions that reduce IT cost and complexity for thousands of customers worldwide," NetApp CEO Tom Georgens said in a statement. The company wants that collaboration to continue, he added.

An Oracle spokeswoman confirmed the contents of NetApp's announcement.
