Oracle Database 19c Now Certified with EBS 12.1 for Linux on IBM Z

John Abraham

As a follow-up to our prior announcement, Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 is now certified with Oracle Database 19c on Linux on IBM Z as a database tier only platform.

Database 19c certified operating systems for Linux on IBM Z are as follows:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 7
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 12

Note:  Linux on IBM Z was previously known as IBM: Linux on System z.

What is a Database Tier Only Platform Certification?

E-Business Suite certified platforms are platforms for which both the application and database tiers of E-Business Suite are supported and for which EBS provides a release package (i.e., Rapid Install). The term E-Business Suite certified platform is synonymous with fully certified platform or Rapid Install supported platform.

A database tier only platform (also known as a split tier configuration) certification is an EBS database certification on a platform for which there is a database release but no corresponding EBS release package. In this case, the application tier runs on a different fully certified platform from the database tier only platform. For a complete list of certified platforms, refer to My Oracle Support's certification tab.

Note:  IBM's Z systems support a mixed platform architecture with distributed UNIX and Linux application tier servers for customers planning to run E-Business Suite on IBM Z systems.

Pending Platform Certifications

Certification of Oracle Solaris on x64 (64-bit) and Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) as Database 19c platforms for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 are pending. These certifications will be announced as they become available.
