Oracle has announced a good first year for the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program, with 1 500 customers adopting the program after the three-month free trial period.

Additionally, the program has experienced significant partner participation through certifications and the Oracle Validated Configurations Program.  As a result of the program’s strong growth, a testament to the demand for enterprise-quality Linux support, Oracle has created a dedicated Linux sales team.  
The Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program has also helped Oracle drive growth and advancements in Linux as bug fixes are provided back to the Linux community, in addition to the company’s on-going new features and functionality contributions.
“The phenomenal adoption of the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme has exceeded expectations and clearly demonstrates that Linux users seek better quality support – the same support Oracle offers its database customers,” says Oracle’s chief corporate architect, Edward Screven. “Oracle continues to be fully committed to Linux with a sharp focus on meeting customer demand, growing its already strong partner ecosystem and most importantly, continuing its technical contributions to advance Linux as an operating system for mission-critical applications. The growth of the program is validation that Oracle is meeting a real customer need.”
Providing a single source for enterprise-quality support for Linux, and the entire Oracle software stack, the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme has been the choice of 1 500 customers and continues to grow rapidly as customers experience the benefits of the program.
Rounding out the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme is the strong backing from Oracle PartnerNetwork members who have certified their solutions with Oracle Enterprise Linux; providing customers with the assurance that their environments have been fully tested and work out-of-the-box.  
In addition to technology providers supporting their products on Linux, the Oracle Validated Configurations program includes more than a dozen infrastructure companies working with Oracle to provide pre-tested, validated and supported architectures – software, hardware, storage and networking components – and best practices, to further ease the deployment of Oracle solutions on Linux.
Through the Oracle Validated Configurations Program, Oracle has worked closely with partners to design and test complete stacks on Linux.
