Using Third-Party Networking Hardware with Oracle Application Server 10g

If you recall, the E-Business Suite isn't explicitly certified with third-party networking components but is expected to work with them. 

Load-balancer with OracleAS 10g Identity Management:

If you're integrating the E-Business Suite with Oracle Application Server 10g, there's another piece that you can add to the puzzle.

Oracle Application Server 10g isn't explicitly certified with third-party networking components, either, but some testing has been performed with specific vendor products.

These tests cover load-balancers, firewalls, and SSL accelerators.  Some of the load-balancer vendors and products include F5's BIG-IP, Foundry, Citrix's NetScaler, Nortel, and Radware.  The firewall and SSL vendors include Check Point, Cisco, Sonic Wall, and Ingrian.

Remember that Oracle testing doesn't equate to certification.  It's the responsibility of the third-party vendor to certify their hardware with Oracle Application Server 10g.  Regardless of that, you might find it reassuring to know that Oracle's tried some of these combinations in the Oracle Application Server 10g labs. 

Even if your networking vendor hasn't certified their hardware explicitly Oracle Application Server (or even the E-Business Suite), it's generally expected that their products will work if they're standards-compliant.
