Momentum Continues For Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program


Oracle today announced that momentum continues to build around the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program (which includes support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Oracle® Enterprise Linux) as several leading Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and infrastructure partners have announced that their solutions work out-of-the-box with Oracle Enterprise Linux.
Oracle Enterprise Linux Among Supported Platforms For Oracle PartnerNetwork Members
Companies such as 170 Systems, AppWorx Corp., Egenera, EMC, Emulex Corp., Hitachi Data Systems, LSI, NetApp, Patchlink, Pillar Data Systems, QLogic, and Synoran, all members of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), now include Oracle Enterprise Linux among the operating systems they support. In addition, open source companies including KnowledgeTree and SugarCRM are also among those supporting the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program. Partners are finding that they can easily and rapidly support their applications on Oracle Enterprise Linux because Oracle Enterprise Linux is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Following the launch of the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program, Oracle is experiencing growing interest from its partners to support their products with Oracle Enterprise Linux and ensure compatibility for their customers. Oracle has maintained full compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which enables third-party vendors to quickly add Oracle Enterprise Linux to their list of supported platforms.

Hardware Partners Participate in Oracle Validated Configurations Program
Oracle continues to engage key industry partners on the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program. In addition to technology providers supporting their products on Oracle Enterprise Linux, partners including AMD, EMC, HP, IBM, Intel and NetApp continue to validate new products with Linux through the Oracle Validated Configurations program. This program provides customers with pre-tested, validated and supported architectures – software, hardware, storage and networking components – for deploying Oracle solutions on Linux.

“IBM has participated in Oracle’s Validated Configurations for Linux program since its inception.” said Doug Balog, vice president, IBM BladeCenter. “As businesses deploy Oracle applications on IBM’s System x and BladeCenter systems, we plan to work with Oracle on the Oracle Unbreakable Linux program to support our joint customers with those deployments.”

“Oracle continues its focus on making Linux better for everyone, and the enthusiastic support from partners furthers our mission to provide tested, supported and reliable enterprise-class Linux-based solutions to our customers,” said Wim Coekaerts, vice president Linux Engineering, Oracle. “The rapid support of Oracle Enterprise Linux by our partners highlights the value Oracle is bringing to the Linux market.”
