Oracle Database 11g on Linux released

Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition and Standard Edition One are now generally available for Linux x86-based systems.

"Oracle Database 11g continues the focus on grid computing by enabling grids of low-cost servers and storage to deliver fast, scalable and reliable data processing," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of database server technologies at Oracle. 

With 11g support for Linux, the building of such grids should be cheaper for organisations using Linux-based hardware and applications. 

Colleen Graham, a Gartner analyst, said: "Organisations are looking to gain insight into the business to make better decisions and identify new opportunities. This is forcing them to invest in their data assets, purchasing new technology and tools that increase operational efficiency, and enable better use of data-management resources."

This need for improved usage of data-management resources is what Oracle is trying to address with its new Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition platform tools. These include Oracle Real Application Testing, Oracle Advanced Compression, Oracle Total Recall and Oracle Active Data Guard.

A free evaluation version of Oracle Database 11g on Linux x86 is available for download on Oracle's site.
