Oracle considering allowing non-Oracle databases with applications

Some users of ERP tools such as Peoplesoft and Siebel have been concerned that the recent acquisition by Oracle may force them to stop using competing databases such as Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2.  In this announcement we see that Oracle is considering a move to continue support for these database products:

“Phillips said Oracle will offer lifetime support to those customers unwilling to move off their current applications, such as PeopleSoft, and upgrade to Project Fusion. The software maker had previously told PeopleSoft and J.D. Edwards customers that it would discontinue support for those companies' applications after 2013.

"For the last 10 (percent) to 15 percent of customers who may not want to upgrade, this (lifetime support) is important to them," Phillips said. He noted that customers who want lifetime support are generally more interested in receiving bug and security fixes than in upgrades to software.”
