New MySQL Enterprise Oracle Certifications
By Bertrand Matthelié on Oct 10, 2011
As mentioned in my summary of MySQL announcements at Oracle OpenWorld, we announced last Monday new MySQL Enterprise Certifications with Oracle Secure Backup and with a number of offerings within the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family.
Many Oracle customers use MySQL for their web-based, departmental and embedded applications. The MySQL Enterprise Oracle certifications make it faster and easier for them to deploy and manage MySQL within their existing environment.
Certified integrations between MySQL and other Oracle products include:
- Oracle Secure Backup: provides an integrated, easy-to-use centralized backup-to-tape management solution enabling users to secure their Oracle and MySQL database backup images across more than 200 tape devices from leading vendors.
- Oracle Fusion Middleware: delivers a comprehensive suite of products that help DBAs and Developers create, run and manage agile and intelligent business applications on their Oracle and MySQL databases using the same familiar tools and feature sets. MySQL is certified with a number of Oracle Fusion Middleware products including Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Data Integrator and Oracle Enterprise Performance Management.
- Oracle Golden Gate: enables real-time replication between MySQL and Oracle Database 11g. Web properties can, for example, transfer real-time data collected in MySQL into the Oracle Database or Oracle Exadata for high volume data mining.
- MyOracle Support: allows MySQL customers to benefit from Oracle’s world-class, 24x7 support infrastructure. The integration also allows existing Oracle Database customers that are using MySQL for Web and departmental applications to receive MySQL technical support via their existing My Oracle Support environment.
- The first Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition, helping customers eliminate manual configuration efforts and risks by providing a pre-installed, pre-configured and certified software stack that includes Oracle VM Server for x86, Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and MySQL Enterprise Edition.
In addition, Oracle is currently developing integrations between MySQL and Oracle Audit Vault, Oracle Clusterware, Oracle Database Firewall, and Oracle Enterprise Manager.
