    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
     -- Oracle today announced that Oracle Unbreakable Linux support customers
        at the Basic and Premier support levels can download and deploy
        Oracle(R) Clusterware at no additional license fee or support cost.
     -- Oracle Clusterware is portable cluster software that groups together
        individual servers so they can cooperate as a single system. A
        fundamental component of Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle
        Clusterware can operate independently and helps ensure the protection
        of an application, Oracle or third-party.
     -- Oracle Clusterware enables high availability, an essential component of
        business continuity, for applications and databases managed in the
        cluster environment -- including Oracle Single Instance Databases,
        Oracle Application Servers, Oracle Enterprise Manager components, third
        party databases, and other applications.
     -- Based on Oracle Clusterware as well as the Oracle Cluster File System
        Version 2, which Oracle contributed to the mainline Linux kernel in
        2006, Oracle's cluster solutions for Linux can be utilized together or
        separately as required.
     -- Since its inception just over a year ago, Oracle Unbreakable Linux has
        delivered end-to-end enterprise quality Linux support to more than
        2,000 customers. By providing a single point of contact for the entire
        software infrastructure stack, along with Oracle's top-to-bottom
        software compatibility, Oracle Unbreakable Linux support helps Oracle
        deliver improved responsiveness, reduced system downtime and increased
        system reliability for customers.
