The Itanium Solutions Alliance has a new blog post out about Oracle announcing that Oracle Database 11g Release 2 version 22.214.171.124 has been certified with oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 (12.0, 12.1) for HP-UX on Itanium based servers. I know that Oracle E-Business Suite is something that comes up regularly in conversations that I have with customers, so this is good news. Oracle certification level information is available here.
One a somewhat unrelated note, we just had Louis Gray present to us here at HP on blogging. It was a great session, and if you want to learn a little more about writing a successful blog, you might want to check out his blog at http://blog.louisgray.com. He has been kind enough to post the presentation he is giving us on this site for anyone to view.
Something interesting came through my e-mail today that I thought I would share with everyone. The Itanium Solutions Alliance has invited Itanium users to submit what they are doing with Itanium-based servers, including HP Integrity servers for recognition and rewards. There are four categories:
- Mission-Critical Data
- Data Center Modernization
- Computationally Intensive Applications
- Humanitarian Impact - which includes a $25,000 prize
The awards celebration will happen during the Intel Development Forum on September 14th, 2010 in San Francisco. Submission forms and more details are available on the Itanium Solutions Alliance web site. Submissions are due on April 12, 2010.
