Oracle and Sun Bring Choice, Innovation and Value to Low Cost Computing

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Oracle]

SAN FRANCISCO, May. 19, 2003 - (http://www.oracle.com/
) Sun and Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ:ORCL) today announced an expansion of their 20-year strategic alliance to include support for Oracle products on Sun's full line of Solaris(TM) Operating System (OS), Solaris OS for x86 and Linux systems.

In expanding the scope of their alliance, the companies announced today that:

  • Oracle software will run on all three Sun platforms -- the #1 UNIX, Solaris OS on SPARC(TM); Solaris OS on the x86 platform; and Linux on x86 -- bringing enterprise reliability and scalability to low-cost servers running mission critical applications and broadening customer choice in server environments. This includes certification for Oracle9i Database, Oracle9iDatabase with Real Application Clusters, Oracle9i Application Server, Oracle Collaboration Suite and the Oracle E-Business Suite. An increased focus on Oracle9i Database with Real Application Clusters on Sun furthers the drive to highly available, low-cost Oracle on Sun database clusters as an option in the datacenter.
  • Sun will continue to deliver systems at industry-leading price points for branded Linux distributions.
  • Sun and Oracle will work together on integration of Sun's N1(TM) architecture and the Oracle database to enable automated deployment of Oracle and its resources in an N1-enabled data center. N1 aggregates heterogeneous computing resources and automates the complexity associated with managing technology. The integration of N1 and Oracle is expected to provide the capability to provision the Oracle database environment, while replacing failed hardware components on the fly, enabling a flexible database deployment. The companies also intend to incorporate Oracle database as the data store for Sun's N1, and work together to make N1 leverage the advantages of Oracle database technology.
