CALDERA: VALIDATION OF ORACLE9I DATABASE ON OPEN UNIX 8.
The Oracle9i Database validation, along with Caldera's 24x7 global services and support, qualify Caldera as a leading software provider for enterprise deployments. With 20 offices in 18 countries servicing 82 countries, Caldera is capable of providing support all over the world. The validation efforts signal that Caldera can support customers running Oracle, and Oracle can support customers running on Open UNIX 8, worldwide.
Open UNIX 8 is one of the most advanced deployment platforms for Intel processor-based industry standard servers, such as market leading Compaq ProLiant servers, and is the trusted foundation for solutions where proven scalability, reliability and affordability are critical. Incorporating the Linux Kernel Personality (LKP) technology, Open UNIX 8 enables customers to run Linux and UNIX applications simultaneously with the complete flexibility of Linux and the same scalability and reliability inherent in UNIX systems.
With their release of Oracle9i Database, Oracle provides a complete and powerful software infrastructure that enables Linux developers worldwide to easily deliver the next wave of intelligent, collaborative Internet applications. Validation of Oracle9i Database on Open UNIX 8 introduces a new industry capability to deploy business critical applications and provides a clear path forward for mutual end users and industry partners.
"We welcome Caldera's decision to validate Oracle products on Caldera's Open UNIX 8 as a platform for Linux-based deployments," said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Global Partnerships, Oracle Corp. "This validation effort helps ensure that customers worldwide can deploy enterprise class software solutions on an operating system that combines the strengths of UNIX and Linux."
Oracle, the former SCO and Caldera have a long history of working together on projects such as performance optimization of Oracle's products and respective operating systems. Currently, Caldera maintains a team of engineers on site at Oracle's Redwood Shores headquarters to work closely with Oracle on on-going validation efforts. Validation of Oracle9i Application Server and Oracle E-Business Suite on Open UNIX 8 are scheduled for completion during the remainder of Q3 and Q4 this year.
"Working with Oracle to cement UNIX and Linux compatibility allows all of our customers to enjoy the benefits of a common integrated platform," said Ransom Love, president and CEO, Caldera. "Further, it strengthens Caldera's lead in the business solution space. Because Oracle9i Database simplifies IT infrastructure, enhances site availability and gives worldwide customers greater control over critical business information, its availability on Open UNIX 8 creates a Linux application in a data center environment with the highest standard of reliability and scalability."
"Compaq's commitment to providing our customers innovative products and seamlessly integrated solutions corresponds with Caldera's vision of an integrated platform," said Rick Becker, vice president, Business Development and OS Marketing, Industry Standard Server Group, Compaq Computer Corporation. "We are very excited that both our Linux and UNIX customers will be able to couple the power of our industry leading Compaq ProLiant servers and Oracle 9i on Open UNIX."
"At this time, IDC is tracking over 140 different Linux distributions," said Dan Kusnetzky, vice president, System Software, IDC. "With this many different Linux distributions available worldwide, software developers have been looking for a single platform for development which will allow software deployment on all of the Linux distributions. It is clear that Oracle believes that developing and certifying software on Caldera's Open UNIX will simplify its Linux development, certification and deployment efforts." Caldera International, Inc.
