Linux NetworX offers Oracle-certified clusters

Linux NetworX announced
today the launch of the Linux NetworX Eclipse(TM) Database Cluster -- a
high-availability cluster based on the Oracle9i(TM) Real Application Cluster
architecture. This ready-to-run system offers scalability, reliability and
high availability for demanding data warehousing, online transaction
processing, and data management applications. The Eclipse Database Cluster is
integrated with Oracle9i Database to provide a continuous, high performance
solution for organizations that can't risk downtime.

The Eclipse(TM) Database Cluster completed Oracle certification testing
and can be deployed for database applications that require scalability on
demand, manageability and high availability at a low total cost of ownership.
It's ideal for data centers, large enterprises or any existing Oracle site
looking to increase its database capacity and reliability. With the
clustering expertise and ICE(TM) (Integrated Cluster Environment)
management tools from Linux NetworX, customers are ensured with a reliable,
easy-to-manage cluster for the database infrastructure.

The shared-everything architecture of the Eclipse Database Cluster is
highly fault resistant. If any hardware or software component fails,
application processes are efficiently re-routed with no loss of data or
application context. The database cluster is comprised of industry-leading
components including multiple Intel Xeon processors, ultra-reliable Dot Hill
storage components, and high-speed gigabit fibre channel interconnects.

The Eclipse Database Cluster is integrated with Linux NetworX ICE(TM)
cluster management tools to provide remote power control, temperature sensing,
and real-time monitoring of critical system functions allowing IT managers to
preempt, accurately diagnose, and quickly respond to any component failure
before it affects system availability.

"The Eclipse Database Cluster is fully certified to work with Oracle,
helping ensure unstoppable power," said Kevin Rose, enterprise systems
business director for Linux NetworX. "Oracle customers will appreciate this
turnkey solution that seamlessly implements Oracle9i RAC and Linux NetworX
database management tools."

The Linux NetworX Eclipse Database Cluster is available immediately and
pricing starts at $126,000 for a 2-node system with 360 GB of storage, plus
applicable Oracle license fee. For more information, visit:
