The UNIX® Standard Makes ISV Engineering’s Job Easier

Here at Oracle® ISV Engineering, we deal with hundreds of applications on a daily basis. Most of them need to support multiple operating systems (OS) environments including Oracle Solaris. These applications are from all types of diverse industries – banking, communications, healthcare, gaming, and more. Each application varies in size from dozens to hundreds of millions of lines of code. A sample list of applications supporting Oracle Solaris 11 can be found here.

As we help Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) support Oracle Solaris, we understand the real value of standards. Oracle Solaris is UNIX certified and conforms to the UNIX standard providing assurance of stable interfaces and APIs. (NOTE: The UNIX standard is also inclusive of POSIX interface/API standard).  ISVs and application developers leverage these stable interfaces/APIs to make it easier to port, maintain and support their applications. The stable interfaces and APIs also reduce the overhead costs for ISVs as well as for Oracle’s support of the ISVs – a win-win for all involved. ISVs can be confident that the UNIX operating system, the robust foundation below their application, won't change from release to release.

Oracle Solaris is unique in which it goes the extra mile by providing a binary application guarantee since its 2.6 release. The Oracle Solaris Binary Application Guarantee reflects the confidence in the compatibility of applications from one release of Oracle Solaris to the next and is designed to make re-qualification a thing of the past. If a binary application runs on a release of Oracle Solaris 2.6 or later, including their initial release and all updates, it will run on the later releases of Oracle Solaris, including their initial releases, and all updates, even if the application has not been recompiled for those latest releases. Binary compatibility between releases of Oracle Solaris helps protect your long-term investment in the development, training and maintenance of your applications.

It is important to note that the UNIX Standard does not restrict the underlying implementation. This is key particularly because it allows Oracle Solaris engineers to innovate "under the hood". Keeping the semantics and behavior of system calls intact, Oracle Solaris software engineers deliver the benefits of improved features, security performance, scalability, stability, etc. while not having a negative impact on application developers using Oracle Solaris.

Are you Ready? and Optimized?

Oracle Solaris Ready, Oracle SuperCluster Ready and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized      

ISVs who support their applications on Oracle Solaris 11 are taking advantage of
the Oracle Solaris Ready and Oracle SuperCluster Ready programs which
are part of the Oracle Exastack Ready program from Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).  
Some are using the Oracle Solaris Remote Lab, a cloud based solution with both SPARC
and X86 VMs, to validate their applications on Oracle Solaris 11 and become Oracle Solaris Ready. 

Unleash ISV Application Performance with Engineered Systems

Qualified OPN members are provided access to Oracle performance experts and lab environments for testing and tuning their applications with Oracle SuperCluster through the

Customers can be confident when selecting Oracle SuperCluster Optimized applications knowing that they are supported, and have been tested and tuned with Oracle SuperCluster Systems to help deliver optimum speed, scalability and reliability.

Partners who have recently achieved Oracle SuperCluster Optimized are:

Why ISVs Run Applications on Oracle SuperCluster

Michael Palmeter, Senior Director Product Development of Oracle Engineered Systems, discusses how ISVs can easily run up to 20x faster, gain 28:1 storage compression, and grow presence in the market all without any changes to their code in this short video.

One of the family of Oracle engineered systems products, Oracle SuperCluster provides maximum end-to-end database and application performance with minimal initial and ongoing support and maintenance effort, at the lowest total cost of ownership.

Java or enterprise applications running on Oracle Database 11gR2 or higher and Oracle Solaris 11 can run up to 20X faster than traditional platforms on Oracle SuperCluster without any changes to their code. 

Large number of customers are consolidating hundreds of their applications and databases on Oracle SuperCluster and are requiring their ISVs to support it.

ISVs can become Oracle SuperCluster Ready and Oracle SuperCluster Optimized by joining the Oracle Exastack program
