With today's announcement, Oracle and Red Hat again showcase leadership in delivering the support and technology customers need to run Linux in the enterprise. Organizations will realize significant benefits from enhancements in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, optimized for the Oracle environment, including better support for large servers and larger number of CPUs. Additionally, customers can rely on Oracle to provide a single point of contact with world-class, seamless technical support of both Oracle and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 -- available in conjunction with the unveiling of the new Red Hat platform.

"Years of collaboration with the goal of enterprise customer success have made our relationship with Oracle strong and reliable in the enterprise," said Paul Cormier, Executive Vice President of Engineering at Red Hat. "Oracle and Red Hat's commitment to the Linux platform is evidenced by our effort to have Oracle products pre-tested, optimized, certified and supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and immediately available to customers."

With thousands of global customers, Oracle has invested considerable resources in pre-testing and certifying the platform for enterprise-class applications and grid computing. Oracle infrastructure and enterprise application products, including Oracle Database, Oracle Application Server, Oracle Collaboration Suite and Oracle E-Business Suite have been certified to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, which incorporates the latest advancements available in the Linux 2.6 kernel.

"Our customers will benefit greatly from the powerful combination of robust Oracle products and the advanced functionality available in this latest Red Hat distribution," said Wim Coekaerts, director of Linux Engineering, Oracle Corp.

With the distribution of the new 2.6 kernel in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Linux brings the same performance and reliability it's known for on low-end servers to large SMP boxes.
