Oracle, VMware to announce partnership

Oracle, VMware team up on deal linking database and software.

SAN FRANCISCO--Oracle and VMware will announce on Monday a cooperative effort linking Oracle's database and VMware's software for letting a single server run several independent operating systems. Through the deal, Oracle's 10g database will work on VMware's virtual-machine software, developers will collaborate on address technology and performance issues and the companies will work on joint marketing, support and products, VMware said in a statement.

In addition, Oracle programmers will standardize on VMware software for development of server software for Windows and Linux running on servers. Full details of the partnership will be announced next week, but Chuck Rozwat, Oracle's executive vice president of server technology, mentioned the deal in a speech Wednesday at the Oracle OpenWorld conference here.
