Oracle Selects the Solaris 10 Operating System as Its Preferred Open Source 64-bit Development and Deployment Environment

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oracle and Sun Microsystems, Inc. today announced that Oracle has chosen the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS), Sun's multi-platform, open source OS, as its preferred development and deployment platform for most x64 architectures, including x64 (x86, 64-bit) AMD Opteron and Intel Xeon processor-based systems and Sun's UltraSPARC(R)-based systems. The Solaris 10 OS will be used throughout Oracle's development organization. Oracle also plans to release and ship 64- bit versions of all Oracle products on the Solaris OS prior to or simultaneous with the release of its products on other operating systems.

With the selection of the Solaris 10 OS, as well as full access to source code and support for more than 440 x86/x64 systems, Oracle will have access to key features including Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), Solaris Containers and TCP/IP performance enhancements. Today's announcement also helps assure customers that Oracle technologies and applications will take full advantage of the advanced features of the Solaris OS.

"Oracle has long viewed the Solaris OS as an important foundation for Oracle applications, but this announcement takes that one step further. With Solaris 10 Sun has delivered an open source, cross-platform OS. And, it's impossible to ignore the significant market opportunity created by the incredible growth of Solaris 10 along with Sun's industry-standard x64 and UltraSPARC-based systems. Solaris was the clear choice for our development platform," said Larry Ellison, CEO, Oracle.

In less than one year, Sun has distributed more than 3 million Solaris OS licenses -- free of charge -- and the Solaris OS currently supports more than 539 platforms, providing customers with the ability to take advantage of Solaris 10 on the broadest choice of hardware in the industry.

"For more than 20 years, Sun and Oracle have worked together to deliver unparalleled value through joint OS and application tuning and optimization," said Scott McNealy, chairman and CEO, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Our working together is a major opportunity to continue growing our joint customer base in the x64 and UltraSPARC markets and helps assure customers that our collaboration provides them virtually seamless integration between Sun and Oracle technologies."
