Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc, is pleased to share the news that select Oracle Software is now Generally Available on Windows Azure and Windows Server Hyper-V.
This means that Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc. and Oracle now provide best in class, end to end support for customers running Oracle software on Windows Azure and Windows Server Hyper-V. You can now use one of Windows Azure’s license-included Oracle images for Windows with full support, and you can still use your existing licenses to run Oracle software on Windows Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) in either Windows or Linux.
Microsoft Windows Server has long been an important Oracle supported platform. Last September at Oracle Open World, Oracle and Microsoft extended that support by providing certification and support for Oracle applications, middleware, Database, Java and Oracle Linux on Windows Server Hyper-V and Windows Azure.
