As a follow-up to a prior announcement, Oracle Database 19c is now certified with E-Business Suite Release 12.2 (12.2.3 and higher) for Linux on IBM Z (previously known as IBM: Linux on System z) as a 'database tier only' platform. The 19c operating systems certified for this platform are:

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

This is a 'database tier only' (also known as a 'split tier' configuration) certification where the application tier must be on a fully certified E-Business Suite platform - see My Oracle Support's certification page for more information. IBM's Z systems fully support a mixed platform architecture with distributed Unix and Linux certified application tier servers for customers looking to run E-Business Suite on IBM Z systems.

For EBS 12.2 and Database 19c, the following are the remaining pending platform certifications:

  • Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
  • Oracle Solaris on x64 (64-bit)

The remaining pending platform certifications will be announced in the future as they become available.  You may monitor or subscribe to this blog for the latest in certification announcements.
