Oracle Pushes The Linux Envelope

Friday, August 8, 2008

Oracle has announced continued momentum across its Linux partner ecosystem with new partners adopting the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program, by certifying with Oracle Enterprise Linux and participating in the Oracle Validated Configurations testing programme. In addition, Oracle has also announced an enhanced Linux partner programme provided through the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).
key component of the programme is Oracle Enterprise Linux. Available as open source, Oracle Enterprise Linux is fully compatible -- both source and binary -- with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). For decades, Oracle has been supporting customers' enterprise-class software deployments for mission-critical data centres around world. As a Linux leader, Oracle is committed to delivering high quality, comprehensive and integrated support solutions to help drive the adoption of Linux in the enterprise and reduce the IT infrastructure costs.

Oracle said in a press statement that it "continues to demonstrate exceptional momentum with partners, including independent software vendors, hardware vendors and system integrators, supporting the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Program and certifying with Oracle Enterprise Linux."

"Oracle remains a leading contributor to the Linux community -- both from a technology and support perspective and is dedicated to broadening the partner community to provide tested, proven and cost-effective enterprise Linux solutions for customers," said Monica Kumar, senior director, Linux and Open Source product marketing, Oracle. "Continued adoption amongst our valued partner community will further provide customers the choice to deploy and optimise Linux within their respective organisations."

Partners can easily and rapidly support their applications on Oracle Enterprise Linux because Oracle Enterprise Linux is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Available as a free download, Oracle Enterprise Linux can also be freely distributed, enabling partners to easily create low-cost solutions for their users (terms, conditions and restrictions may apply). New partners and certifications in the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support Program include: 3PAR, ActiveState, Bakbone, FalconStor, Likewise Software, Mellanox Technologies, SGI, SteelEye Technology, Inc., Quest Software, Tripwire, TeamQuest, Trusted Computer Solutions, Voltaire, Zeus and Zmanda.

Members of the Oracle PartnerNetwork can now join the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Product Focus Area on the OPN portal and align themselves with the Linux opportunities offered. Previously housed within the Database Product Focus Area on OPN, partner interest in Oracle Unbreakable Linux has accelerated the move to offer a specific Product Focus Area for partners to join.

Through this alignment, partners can now also embed Oracle Enterprise Linux and offer enterprise-quality support to customers. Oracle Unbreakable Linux accelerates the Linux market opportunity for partners and helps lower their cost of bringing high quality, fully supported, solutions to users. Other Oracle Unbreakable Linux opportunities available to partners include: resell Oracle Unbreakable Linux support; certify applications on Oracle Enterprise Linux; Access best practices via the Oracle Validated Configurations Program; order Enterprise Linux development support; promote their Linux offerings in the Oracle PartnerNetwork Solutions Catalog; and leverage joint marketing opportunities.

"The enthusiastic interest and support of Oracle Enterprise Linux by our partners highlights the value Oracle is bringing to the Linux market," said Judson Althoff, group vice president, worldwide alliances and channels, Oracle. "Our partners' demand for more Linux opportunities further demonstrates the power of our growing partner ecosystem to bring tested, supported and reliable enterprise-class Linux-based solutions to our customers through the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support programme."
