Oracle announced OpenStack support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. The company introduced a preview of an OpenStack distribution that allows users of either to work with the open source cloud software.
Oracle says it provides customers with more choices and interoperability while taking advantage of "efficiency, performance, scalability, and security" of its offerings.
At no extra cost, the distribution comes as part of the Oracle Linux and Oracle VM Premiere Support offerings. Users can install the preview in their test environments with the latest version of Oracle Linux and he beta release of Oracle VM 3.3.
"Oracle is working closely with the OpenStack community across many areas,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. “Oracle will continue to help deliver OpenStack capabilities to enable our customers to more efficiently deploy, manage and support their large Oracle data center deployments.”
“We are excited to see the OpenStack eco-system growing,” said Mark Collier, chief operating officer, OpenStack Foundation. “As Oracle and others integrate OpenStack into enterprise IT environments, users will have new choices for deploying OpenStack in their data centers.”
Oracle says customers can use Oracle Linux as the base OS for OpenStack deployments where they can take advantage of Oracle Ksplice's patching capabilities.
OpenStack's compute, network and storage management services can be downloaded from the Oracle Public Yum Server and Unbreakable Linux Network.
Those who deploy the OpenStack distribution can get Oracle's enterprise-class support.
