Oracle Supports OpenStack on Linux and Solaris

In a move that seems somewhat obvious, Oracle May 13 announced OpenStack support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. Oracle had previously announced OpenStack support for its Solaris 11.2 Unix operating system that is currently in beta.

The support is coming as a technology preview of an OpenStack distribution that works with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.

"Oracle is working closely with the OpenStack community across many areas," said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president of Linux and Virtualization Engineering at Oracle, in a statement. "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."
