"Today, SuSE Linux AG, the international technology leader and solution provider in Open Source operating system (OS) software, announced that SuSE Linux 7.0 is tested and optimized for Oracle8i, the first database specifically designed as an Internet development and deployment platform. Through supporting Oracle8i, SuSE underlines the importance of Linux as an enterprise class operating platform for high volume e-business."

"Starting with the SuSE Linux 6.4 release, SuSE provides a Logical Volume Manager and the Journaling Reiser FileSystem, features supporting large Oracle database servers, on their distribution. Due to an enhanced raw device support and 4 GB main memory addressing, SuSE Linux 7.0 is a stable and costefficient server system for very large and complex database applications."

"The Logical Volume Manager allows users to create virtual partitions that span many physical partitions and disks. The user may increase or decrease the size of the virtual partition during runtime, if more space is needed."
