Oracle Corp. and Novell Inc. announced Tuesday that a wide variety of Oracle's software is available for Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9. The firms have a long history of cooperating on non-Linux applications.

Oracle applications supported include the firm's latest database, clustering, application server, collaboration solutions, and enterprise applications. Specifically, the firms said the Oracle software that has been tested and certified includes Database 10g, Application Server 10g, Real Application Clusters, Collaboration Suite, and E-Business Suite 11i.

"Combining the power of Oracle with the 2.6 Linux kernel in SuSE Linux makes for a compelling data-center option for enterprise customers," said Novell's vice president of alliances, Hal Bennett, in a statement.

The firms noted that Oracle's Real Applications Clusters (RAC) allows Oracle 10g to run uninterrupted in case a server fails. Users simply add more SuSE Linux Enterprise Servers to the cluster as necessary.
