Emulex Widens Oracle Linux Support

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced plans to expand support for customers of the Oracle(r) Unbreakable Linux support program across its LightPulse(r) HBA product line. Enterprise Linux users trust Emulex for their mission-critical Fibre Channel Connectivity needs and Emulex's participation in the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program is a natural extension to its commitment to data center computing. Working in close partnership, Emulex and Oracle can now provide their joint customers a robust, fully supported solution.

Emulex and Oracle continue to provide drivers and other key solutions to the Linux upstream kernel and the open source community. Both companies will continue their coordination to provide enhanced security, data protection and connectivity solutions to the Linux developer and user communities. Emulex HBAs provide flexible, scalable connectivity to SANs and together with Oracle's Unbreakable Linux support, customers gain enterprise-class support for their Linux environments. Emulex products that are certified with Oracle Enterprise Linux, as part of Oracle's Unbreakable Linux support program, include 4Gb/s PCI-X and PCI Express HBAs, as well as previous generations of its 2Gb/s HBAs.

"Oracle's Unbreakable Linux support program is yet another proof of Oracle's deep commitment to making the Linux experience better for users. As more and more customers deploy SANs, our close partnership with Emulex enables us to jointly provide the performance and reliability these customers demand for their mission-critical applications," said Monica Kumar, senior director of product marketing, Oracle.
