Oracle has announced the availability of its Oracle Database 11g on the Linux platform.

Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition and Standard Edition One are now generally available for Linux x86-based systems.

"Oracle Database 11g continues the focus on grid computing by enabling grids of low-cost servers and storage to deliver fast, scalable and reliable data processing," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice-president of database server technologies at Oracle.

With 11g support for Linux, the building of such grids should be cheaper for companies and organisations using Linux-based hardware and applications.

A free evaluation version of Oracle Database 11g on Linux x86 is available for download on the Oracle Technology Network.
