HP (NYSE:HPQ) today announced that it has combined engineering resources with Oracle, the world's largest enterprise software company, and Red Hat, the world's premier open source and Linux provider, to certify and deliver Red Hat Linux Advanced Server on an 8-Node Oracle9i Real Application Clusters environment running on ProLiant DL580 servers from the new HP.
Building on the long-standing engineering relationships among HP, Oracle and Red Hat, the partners are able to offer customers of the Oracle9i Database a proven deployment platform for Linux. HP was the first vendor to deliver a Real Application Clusters certified configuration on Linux with the launch last year of Oracle9i Real Application Clusters on ProLiant DL580 servers. HP and Oracle have worked closely together in the areas of scalability and performance enhancements, and this expertise has been leveraged in the work that Oracle has done with Red Hat on Red Hat Linux Advanced Server.
