Intel and Oracle have worked together for over 20 years to ensure that hardware and software are optimized to work together for maximum performance and reliability. In this podcast, listen as two engineering experts from Oracle Linux team and Intel discuss how they work closely together to solve problems and create opportunities for their customers with co-developed technologies.
In this podcast, Guru Anbalagane, Director of Linux Kernel Development at Oracle, and Dave Hansen, Kernel Engineer at Intel’s Open Source Technology Center, trade stories about how the two companies draw on deep co-engineering relationships to deliver mission-critical-ready engineered solutions.
The years of close cooperation between Intel and Oracle deliver more than just enhanced performance and reliability. All the changes and updates from this collaboration gets loaded into mainline Linux kernel and which is available to all the open source community.
Enterprise infrastructure based on Oracle Linux and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families delivers state-of-the-art performance and mission critical reliability, on a cost-effective and truly open platform. Building on over 20 years of collaboration between Oracle and Intel, the technology stack brings out the best of hardware and software that are engineered to work together.
IT organizations searching for ways to do more with less are implementing open-standards infrastructure based on Oracle Linux and Intel® Xeon® processors. As a single consolidation target to replace multiple technologies and Linux* variants, these systems offer a flexible, powerful platform for innovation that is based on highly optimized combinations of hardware and software building blocks.
This year Oracle OpenWorld 2014 had been a busy one for us and our Partners. It had been one of the most successful showcases we had organized so far with 15 Partners actively demonstrating their solutions for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. Many of our ISV and IHV partners announced solutions around Oracle Linux, Oracle VM and Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux. During the Showcase, we recorded some of our partners who talked about their solution:
Here's the list of announcements and updates in September from our partners which shows the collaboration and joint engineering efforts of Oracle Linux and Virtualization teams with the key ISV and IHVs:
This week, we have a really cool video done by Intel that features Oracle's Phillip Goerl discussing the Oracle Linux development model and how it relates to Intel Xeon. Click below to jump to YouTube and play the video:
The Intel Enabled Solutions Acceleration Alliance (ESAA)
gives resellers and direct Intel OEMs access to wide range of pre-validated
configuration guides (“recipes”) jointly developed by Intel and independent
hardware and software vendors. Similarly, the Oracle
Linux and Oracle VM hardware certification program provides a mechanism for
hardware vendors to work with Oracle to establish high quality support for the
certified hardware. Close collaboration between Oracle and Intel ESAA teams
ensures that our mutual customers benefit from the formal server certification
and support from both Intel and Oracle.
