it was not Oracle's property. Do we know where this equipment is? Where would Apache host
such systems?

At the moment, all we have is a Software Grant.  While we could chose
to go back and ask for me (and likely will when it comes to other
source files that we determine we might need), I see nothing that
indicates that we have a need to request the transfer of hardware.

As to the question as to whether or not such hardware is Oracle's
property, I have no opinion on the topic.
