Oracle Keeps Growing Partner Certifications with Addition of McAfee

Viruses stink. Whether it’s the common cold virus, Goatpox virus – yes it exists -- or a computer virus, you name it, viruses stink. When it comes to our computer server infrastructure we all want to make sure our servers are secure from any malware out there. Additionally, installation of anti-virus software is a requirement by many governments and for many enterprises both large and small.

Because of the growth of Oracle Linux in their customer base, McAfee recently certified their “McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux” on Oracle Linux.  It delivers always-on, real-time anti-virus protection for Linux environments. Its unique, Linux-based on-access scanner constantly monitors the system for potential attacks. While there have been few viruses found on Linux, you can now feel secure running Oracle Linux in your infrastructure with McAfee on top.

We are happy to introduce McAfee into the Oracle Linux family of certified applications

ISV Certification is Accelerating on Oracle Linux

A typical question I receive on a daily basis from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) is how they can work with Oracle to certify their applications on Oracle Linux.  The quick answer I give them is “Paper Cert it!” That might not explain the whole process, but it is that easy. Let me give some background for those who are unfamiliar with Oracle Linux.

Oracle Linux is binary compatible to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). This means your applications will run the same on Oracle Linux as they do on RHEL. That’s because Oracle Linux with the Red Hat compatible kernel is based on RHEL source code. While you can run your full QA on Oracle Linux it generally is not necessary. What I typically hear from an ISV after doing such is “Wow, you guys are right, Oracle Linux is the same as RHEL, we will paper cert from here on out!”  You may not know this, but when it comes to Linux, Oracle only runs Oracle Linux on our infrastructure. We use no RHEL–zero, zip, zilch, nada. Because Oracle is so confident in our binary compatibility to RHEL, Oracle simply “paper certs” or says RHEL is certified for Oracle applications.

If you opt to certify your user space application on Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel then you can deliver your application on the latest cutting edge, high performance kernel allowing ISV customers to ride the speed demon wave. Since the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel uses the same user space libraries as our Red Hat compatible kernel, userspace applications certified on our compatible kernel are certified on the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel.

Today I spoke with a large ISV who is certifying on Oracle Linux. In the last six months they’ve seen a huge demand for Oracle Linux requests and within the last few weeks have certified their kernel based application on both the compatible kernel and the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel. This scenario is being replicated each week by large and small ISVs as demand is driving them to support their customers’ choice of running applications on Oracle Linux.

Oracle Linux has support from leading ISVs including:  SAP, EMC, HP, BMC, CA, Symantec, BeyondTrust, Microstrategy, Sungard, NetApp, Informatica, McAfee and Quest software just to name a few.

So now you want to certify on Oracle Linux, what’s the next step - who do you contact? Hit the comments section below and ask us to contact you, read our documentation, tweet us @ORCL_Linux or use good ole email with your request, and we’ll share with you how easy it is to certify. We make it easy.
