"Customers want powerful computing capabilities at low cost," said Larry Ellison, Oracle chief executive officer. "Intel and Oracle's increased investment and joint work will give customers a viable, cost-effective solution to run their data centers.

"Intel multicore server platforms and Oracle databases and applications running on Linux are a powerful combination for enterprise customers," said Intel president and CEO Paul Otellini. "The expansion of our enterprise computing collaboration with Oracle will allow us to work hand in hand in helping customers deploy these compelling solutions."

Through this collaboration, the two companies will work together to ensure timely certification and coordinated delivery of Intel and Oracle products into the datacenter. As part of this work, Intel and Oracle will establish industry-standard benchmarks for the data center for joint publication. Intel will also contribute to Oracle's Unbreakable Linux 2.0 program by working with Oracle on Enterprise Linux enhancements for the two companies' mutual customers' benefit. Intel and Oracle plan to implement these features, in conjunction with the Linux community and the Linux vendors, to include support of enterprise features and optimizations for Intel-based server platforms.

The companies have also agreed to joint-marketing activities promoting the benefits of Oracle solutions running on Intel(R) Core(R) Microarchitecture- based Linux server deployments.
