Oracle Validated Configuration – Beyond Just Hardware Certifications

Check out the newly announced Oracle Validated Configuration with the Lenovo x3950 X6 servers and a new Lenovo Press guide titled Oracle and Lenovo X6 Validated Configuration Guide.

Accelerate your Linux Deployments with Oracle Validated Configurations

For those who are not familiar, Oracle Validated Configurations enable easier, faster, and lower-cost deployment of Oracle Linux and Oracle VM solutions in the enterprise. The program offers pre-tested, validated architectures, with documented best practices for software, hardware, storage, and network components. This integrated approach helps improve the performance, scalability, and reliability of solutions, with faster, lower-cost implementations. This industry-wide program is accepted and endorsed by partners as a way to document best practice deployments of their products in Oracle's Linux and virtualized environments.

Oracle Validated Configurations provide unique value to the customers as the integrated stack, including hardware and software, goes through rigorous testing to ensure that different pieces work together in the most effective way. This means customers do not have to do any additional testing in their own environments. Moreover, customers can get support for the individual pieces of the Oracle Validated Configurations in exactly same way as they get support for any other Oracle and partner products. Oracle and the participating ISV and IHV partners have joint support processes to address any customer issues that may come up with the Oracle Validated Configuration.
