Oracle, Symantec Announce Certification

CUPERTINO, Calif. and REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. -- In response to growing customer demand for the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program, Oracle and Symantec today announced certification of Veritas data center software with Oracle Enterprise Linux. The certification will help organizations running Symantec on Linux reduce deployment time and implementation costs.

Launched in 2006 to help drive the adoption of Linux in the enterprise, Oracle Unbreakable Linux provides customers with industry-leading global support for Linux. Oracle Enterprise Linux, a feature of the Oracle Unbreakable Linux program, is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With this latest certification, Oracle Unbreakable Linux support customers deploying Veritas solutions with Oracle Enterprise Linux will receive enterprise-quality support from both vendors. The certification spans the following six Veritas data center software products: Veritas Storage Foundation 5.0; Veritas Storage Foundation for Oracle 5.0; Veritas Storage Foundation Cluster File System 5.0; Veritas Cluster Server 5.0, Veritas NetBackup 6.0 Client and Veritas i3.

"The Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program continues to demonstrate strong momentum as we expand our work with industry leaders to help simplify the adoption, development and deployment of Linux in the enterprise," said Wim Coekaerts, vice president, Linux Engineering, Oracle. "Enterprise customers adopting Linux want to leverage the enterprise storage management and high availability processes and standards that are mainstays in their UNIX environments. As a result of our work with Symantec, we are making it easier for customers to deploy Symantec solutions with Oracle Enterprise Linux."
