    Overview

    Lenovo's synergy with Oracle® demonstrates the commitment to our partnership and potential opportunities for joint development. With this relationship in place, Lenovo and Oracle look forward to a fruitful relationship that is customer-focused and wholly intended on providing the best end-user experience. Whether your business demands a straightforward Oracle Database implementation or an end-to-end, integrated enterprise solution, Lenovo servers can power diverse Oracle workloads.

    Oracle Linux

    Oracle Linux provides the latest innovations, tools, and features enabling you to innovate, collaborate, and create solutions across traditional, cloud-based, and virtual environments. Providing advanced scalability and reliability for enterprise applications, Oracle Linux delivers a high-value, low-cost option for Lenovo servers, which are tested and certified on Oracle Linux.

    Oracle VM

    Oracle VM Server for x86 is a free server virtualization and management solution that makes enterprise applications easier to deploy, manage, and support. Backed worldwide by affordable, enterprise-quality support for both Oracle and non-Oracle environments, Oracle VM facilitates the deployment and operation of your enterprise applications on a fully certified platform that helps reduce costs while simultaneously increasing IT efficiency and agility.

    Support for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM

    Many Lenovo servers are listed on the Oracle Hardware Certification Lists (HCL) as certified on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, and on the Oracle Validated Configurations list, ensuring that the experience between Lenovo's hardware and Oracle Linux/Oracle VM is enterprise-ready. These lists are updated continuously as Lenovo comes out with new servers.

    As part of our committed partnership, Lenovo and Oracle are formally announcing support for solutions featuring a joint infrastructure stack. Lenovo will take on the customer support for the hardware, and Oracle will support the software elements. This commitment to service extends from Lenovo's ThinkServer portfolio into the System x server line.

    Oracle Database

    Oracle Database 12c introduces a new multitenant architecture that makes it easy to consolidate many databases quickly and manage them as a cloud service. Oracle Database 12c also includes in-memory data processing capabilities delivering breakthrough analytical performance. Additional database innovations deliver new levels of efficiency, performance, security, and availability. Oracle Database 12c comes in three editions to fit your business needs and budget: Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, and Standard Edition One.

  • Oracle Linux

    A High-Value, Low-Cost Linux Solution

    Oracle® Linux is free to use, free to distribute, free to update, and easy to download.

    The highly scalable architecture is designed for:

    • Rapid application deployment using prebuilt Oracle VM Templates
    • Fully integrated lifecycle management from disk to applications to cloud, using Oracle Enterprise Manager
    • Fully certified support for all Oracle applications
    • Zero licensing cost, affordable enterprise-quality support

    Oracle VM software is available for free. Support for Oracle VM can be purchased from Oracle.

  • Oracle Database
