News Facts

Demonstrating to customers that their solutions are tuned to deliver optimum speed, scalability and reliability on Oracle Engineered Systems, Oracle partners are rapidly achieving Oracle Exastack Optimized certification.
Part of the Oracle Exastack Program, Oracle Exastack Optimized enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and other qualifying members of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) to optimize their applications to run even faster and more reliably on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
Partners who have achieved Oracle Exastack Optimized status have recognized application performance increases of more than 42x and data compression increases of more than 26x, leading to improved total cost of ownership and reduced storage costs*.
Partners across key industries and geographies who have already achieved Oracle Exastack Optimized include Adaptive TechSoft, Kerridge Commercial Systems, ElectraCard Services, Neusoft and Kiman amongst many others.
In less than one year, more than 100 ISV applications have achieved an Oracle Exastack Ready status and more than 35 ISV applications have achieved Oracle Exastack Optimized status and can be found by Oracle customers listed in the Oracle Solutions Catalog.
The Oracle Exastack Program also provides partners with direct access to global Oracle Exastack Lab environments, technical enablement resources and world-class performance engineers who can help partners optimize their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
Further enabling partners to differentiate their offering and provide trusted solutions to customers, Oracle today enhanced the Oracle Exastack Optimized program with the ability to achieve Oracle Exastack Optimized status for Oracle’s SPARC SuperCluster T4-4.
Available immediately, partners can test their solutions on the SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 through the Oracle Exastack Labs, remotely accessible environments for the purposes of testing and tuning applications on the latest major releases of key Oracle Exastack components.
