HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC - News) and Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL - News) today announced several key areas of joint support as part of the Oracle Unbreakable Linux program. The EMC E-Lab, together with Oracle engineering, has tested and qualified Oracle Enterprise Linux on core EMC platforms and software products to help ensure ease of deployment and use.

"As customers deploy enterprise applications on Oracle Enterprise Linux, they want confidence that all their infrastructure components have been tested and qualified," said Chuck Hollis, Vice President, Technology Alliances, EMC Corporation. "EMC and Oracle have been working together to deliver the highest level of seamless integration as well as developing best practices for validated configurations and migration services."

In addition to extensive joint testing, Oracle Enterprise Linux customers can reduce implementation time and risk by leveraging pre-defined best practices and reference architectures.
