"Knox Software Corp., a Southern Calif.-based supplier of network backup software, and SuSE Linux, the international technology leader and solution provider in open source operating system (OS) software, jointly announced today that SuSE Linux 6.3 and 6.4 are certified by Knox Software as compatible OS platforms for Knox's new database backup software for Oracle on Linux. SuSE is now authorized to resell and support Arkeia for Oracle RMAN, the only database backup application tested by Oracle Corp. today to provide hot backup and restore capabilities for Oracle on Linux. Knox awarded SuSE the authorization upon completion of a suite of compatibility tests covering installation, configuration and performance of the software under SuSE Linux 6.3 and 6.4."

"Arkeia is the perfect match for our technological expertise," comments Volker Wiegand, CEO of SuSE Inc. "Arkeia and SuSE already have a close relationship in Europe and SuSE is Arkeia's top selling backup partner. We are happy to expand this relationship all over the US, now that SuSE is certified for both Arkeia and Oracle."

"Arkeia for Oracle RMAN provides a seamless solution for backing up Oracle databases (versions 8.1.6 or later) on Linux. Through tight integration with Oracle's RMAN data management API, the software enables database administrators to incrementally backup or restore Oracle databases while leaving mission-critical production servers online. Combined with the proven reliability and quality of SuSE Linux, the two products enable database administrators to deploy cost-effective, high performance Oracle backup functionality on a network without concern for undiscovered library or kernel incompatibilities."
