Hewlett Packard Enterprise has won another huge victory over Oracle and just over US$3 billion in damages.

The two were back in court to determine what damages, if any, Oracle owed over its decision some years ago to stop making software for HPE's high-performance servers built on Intel's Itanium chip.

After Oracle bought Sun Microsystems and started building its own servers, it announced that it would not be making its database software for Itanium.

HP sued Oracle for breach of contract a few years ago and won.

While in court to determine damages, testimony came from such folks as Oracle CEO Mark Hurd and its co-founder Larry Ellison.
