For details about these newly-certified configurations, see: More more information about Oracle products' certification with Oracle VM, see: What about other vendors' technologies? Other vendors such as Hewlett Packard and IBM also have their own specific software and hardware based virtualization technologies that are promoted for the same reasons.

    So I saw that very recently the MOS Note 249212.1 was updated with this snippet:


    NOTE: Oracle has not certified any of its products on VMware. For Oracle RAC, Oracle will only

    accept Service Requests as described in this note on Oracle RAC and later



    That's excellent - that means Oracle now supports (though not certifies) Oracle RAC when it is running under VMware.

    I know you can't say when will be certified to run with Oracle Applications, but I look forward to it. Christmas gift to the DBAs maybe? :)

    Thanks for all your team does. Virtualization makes my job as a DBA much easier.

    Hi, Jay,

    Yes, I saw your delighted blog article this morning.

    We're in the final stages of our EBS+ certification right now. Stay tuned.

    HI Steven,

    Now if we do Oracle EBS R12 production deployment in Solaris Containers it will be fully certified and supported by oracle. right ?

    We are still a little vague about deploying EBS R12 Production instance in Solaris containers. Do you have any thoughts/comments on this?

    Hello Rakesh -

    EBS R12 is now explicitly certified and thus supported on Solaris Containers, so we do support an R12 prod instance running in a container or other SPARC technologies noted above.
