Supported Virtualization and Partitioning Technologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware


This page contains certification information on supported virtualization and partitioning technologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware (Oracle FMW) product releases.

Every Oracle Fusion Middleware product that is certified on Linux, Windows or Oracle Solaris as physical OS is also certified and supported when running as virtual guest on Oracle VM as long as the respective operating system is supported by Oracle VM.

Note: If an Operating System (OS) vendor releases a newer OS version, along with a complimenting virtualization/partitioning technology, the support of this new combination depends on the following:

  • The new OS should be certified by Oracle Fusion Middleware. For supported configurations information (e.g. details on OS version, processor, JDK, database, browser), please refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported Systems Configurations.
  • The new OS plus the virtualization/partitioning solution is guaranteed by the appropriate hardware vendor to be backward compatible to the version listed in the tables below.

The following sections identify the supported virtualization/partitioning technologies for Oracle Fusion Middleware product releases.

Oracle Products are not certified to run on Virtual Machines/guests provided by Xen or KVM offerings by Red Hat, Novell or XenSource. Refer to My Oracle Support Doc ID 417770.1.

Note 3 :

Support For Sun Solaris 10 In Multi-Zone Operation

Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Fusion Middleware components (for example, Oracle Portal and Oracle SOA Suite) that are running on top of WebLogic Server can run in multiple zones of a Sun Solaris 10 system, with some limitations:

  1. All WebLogic Server features are supported in Solaris global zones.
  2. All WebLogic Server features are supported in Solaris non-global zones when using Exclusive-IP in the non-global zones.
  3. All WebLogic Server features except Whole Server Migration (automated or manual) are supported in non-global zones when using Shared-IP in the non-global zones. WebLogic Server Whole Server Migration is only supported in non-global zones when using Exclusive-IP in the non-global zones. For additional information on this topic refer to My Oracle Support Doc ID 976795.1.
