Packaged Application and Infrastructure Software vendors continue to use Oracle software on Linux to provide customers with a highly available, scalable, database clustering technology on the lowest cost hardware and operating system infrastructure.

Key Packaged Application ISVs include: 360Commerce, Agilent Technologies, Aldata Solution, Inc., Algorithmics, Cardonet, CGI, CMiC, Complex Corp., Distra, Elance, EnvironMax, Inc., ESRI Inc., Fiserv Imagesoft, IFS, Interwoven, Jesta I.S., Kronos Incorporated, Landacorp, McKesson Corporation, MercuryMD, Net4Call, Peace Software, RedPrairie Corporation, Rosetta Biosoftware, Sabrix, Synoran, Tomax Corporation, Triversity, Workbrain, Inc. and Yantra.

"ISVs are driving demand for the Oracle on Linux platform -- as their infrastructure of choice for delivering critical applications," said Robert Shimp, vice president, Technology Marketing, Oracle. "With Oracle Real Application Clusters on Linux, ISVs are able to deliver better value without sacrificing on the enterprise-class features, like high availability, that customers have come to rely upon."

Oracle has introduced a number of initiatives to help ISVs build and deploy applications on the Linux platform. In 2003, Oracle launched the Linux Business Development Initiative to provide ISVs with technical advice, migration best practices, training and marketing assistance to speed time to market for their Linux-based applications. The initiative now boasts more than 1,500 members.

Oracle's longstanding commitment to Linux has made it the leading enabler of database software on Linux. According to Gartner's recently released relational database management system (RDBMS) market share results for 2004, Linux is the fastest growing platform with 118 percent growth and Oracle is the top database on Linux with 81 percent market share. Additionally, almost 20 to 30 percent of Oracle Real Application Cluster deployments are estimated to be on the Linux platform.(1)

Oracle's Linux Heritage

Since introducing the first database to run on Linux in 1998, Oracle has been committed to furthering Linux adoption across the enterprise. Support has been a hallmark of the Oracle-Linux organization since June 2002 when Oracle began providing code-level support for the entire software platform, including the operating system. With more than 9,000 Oracle developers using Linux infrastructure to develop products, Oracle continues to provide the technology leadership to enable the Linux platform for enterprise applications and grid solutions. Oracle also has a Linux Kernel Group dedicated to working with Linux vendors to provide fixes and develop new functionality to benefit the Linux community. Most recently, the company launched a dedicated Linux Test Lab to help ensure the quality, stability and supportability of the operating system.

Partners Use Oracle on Linux to Deliver More Value to Customers

"Given our focus on helping customers improve productivity and deliver fast and real returns on IT investments, Kronos is excited when innovative products are delivered by our partners that can reduce the total cost of deploying the Kronos Workforce Central suite of applications," said Dr. Ian Holland, vice president, Architecture and Systems Engineering, Kronos Incorporated. "With the combination of open source technologies and Oracle Real Application Clusters on Linux, there is a new scalable, reliable, and very affordable option for our enterprise workforce management customers."

"As our customers look for ways to reduce their technology spend, open source alternatives are becoming increasingly popular," said Michael J. Simpson, senior vice president, McKesson Corporation. "Oracle's Linux Business Development Initiative helped us respond to customer demands quickly with new, Linux-based applications."

"Oracle Real Application Clusters on Linux enable us to extend more value to customers throughout the supply chain," said Janice Scanzio, vice president of performance, Yantra Corp., a Sterling Commerce company. "The ability to scale implementation on an as-needed basis is a cost effective alternative to otherwise expensive hardware. We think the high, reliable performance we've measured with our supply chain applications will be of huge value to our customers as they enable revenue-producing initiatives within their multi-enterprise community."
