Database vendors are all over 64-bit. Oracle Corp. and Computer Associates International Inc. on Tuesday embraced Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s release of its new 64-bit Opteron chip, with each company separately announcing support for the 64-bit architecture in their flagship databases. Meanwhile, Microsoft Corp. on Thursday is expected to announce support for 64-bit in SQL Server 2000. Oracle, of Redwood Shores, Calif., announced general availability of its Oracle9i database on Opteron running 32-bit Linux. Company officials said that support for 32-bit Linux and Windows will be available in coming months on Oracle9i Application Server, Oracle Collaboration Suite and Oracle E-Business Suite.
