"Oracle, the largest provider of software for e-business, today announced the industry's first clustered database server on the Linux operating system, Oracle8i Parallel Server. Customers will be able to use the low-cost Linux operating system to deploy mission critical, highly available business applications or large-scale data warehouses. Targeted specifically at easing the pressure e-businesses face in today's "always on" Internet environment, Oracle8i Parallel Server on Linux aims to eliminate costly downtime, increase revenue opportunities and ultimately ensure success for a new generation of Linux applications. Oracle also announced future support for Oracle9i Real Application Clusters, the next evolution of Oracle8i Parallel Server, on the Linux platform."
