Ink and printer firm Hewlett Packard (HP) has announced concerns from partners and clients voicing their displeasure at Oracle, which has decided to end its Itanium processor development with the company.

Oracle was developing hardware using HP integrity systems, which customers have invested billions in using the software.

HP has noted that Oracle's decision to halt future development will cost people millions of dollars in lost productivity and stifle the industry.

Martin Fink, senior vice president and general manager in business critical systems at HP, said: "We believe in fair and spirited competition and the customer's right to choose the best technology for their organisations.

"In their most recent quarterly earnings, Oracle missed their hardware revenue target on Sun servers."

He noted that Oracle should not be using the business tactics it has adopted.

Recently, the ink printer firm announced it was offering customers and enterprises new applications to deliver greater flexibility and speed at home and in their office.
