Oracle Builds the World's Biggest Linux-Based Organization

June 11, 2004

Using more than 9,000 developers to create Linux-based products, Oracle aims to become the largest Linux-based development organization in the world.  According to the following article on,

"The company began the global initiative last year with the migration of 5,000 developers to Linux, and anticipates that by the end of 2004, its core development team worldwide will be leveraging the operating system. With Linux, Oracle developers have a broader choice of hardware platforms and can use cheap, fast hardware in a grid environment to help increase productivity and enhance testing capabilities."

The article goes on to say,

  •  "Oracle's support of Linux is helping organizations realize the benefits of low-cost, standards-based hardware. This commitment is evidenced through a number of Oracle initiatives, including:
    • Strategic partnerships with key Linux providers Red Hat, Novell, Miracle Linux and Red Flag;
    • A 6,000-plus global support team that provides complete technical support to Oracle customers running on Linux;
    • Oracle Linux Kernel Group -- a team dedicated 24/7 to working with Linux vendors, providing fixes and developing new functionality to directly benefit the Linux community;
    • Oracle Linux and Open Source Developer Centers -- providing developers with access to source codes and Oracle on Linux via the Oracle Technology Network at or ;
    • One thousand-plus commercially available partner applications on the Linux/Oracle platform."
