Standards at Oracle

Oracle builds products on standards developed by international organizations and industry consortia.

Oracle is committed to building standards-based products to help customers reduce complexity and get the most out of their existing technology investments. We build products on standards developed by international organizations and industry consortia and strive to comply with market-accepted standards to provide our customers with interoperability, choice, and lower costs. As both a contributor and leader in open source communities, Oracle is a supporting member of the Linux Foundation, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Eclipse Foundation, and the Java Community Process program, among others.

Oracle participates actively in more than 100 standards-setting organizations and more than 300 technical committees, and thousands of our employees are actively engaged in standards or open source projects. These employees contribute to efforts ranging from Java and Linux to Kubernetes.

Our standards work across global geographies and business units includes collaboration with:

Some examples of our work in standards organizations we drive and influence, including specific verticals and technologies.

Standards are in our DNA

Oracle Founders, 1978
Oracle Founders, 1978
Today Oracle products implement thousands of standards.

Oracle was founded around the implementation of an open standard: SQL. Before we released a product, we were able to participate in developing the SQL standard on a level playing field with established technology companies. SQL became an ANSI standard in 1986 and an ISO standard in 1987.

Everything that we have in our cloud runs in Amazon’s cloud and other clouds that are standards-based.

Larry Ellison Chairman of the Board and Chief Technology Officer

Oracle collaborates with standards-setting organizations

Oracle collaborates with more than a hundred standards-setting organizations, including:

3GPP The 3rd Generation Partnership Project unites seven telecommunications standards organizations to develop specifications for mobile telecommunications.
ANSI The American National Standards Institute is a private, nonprofit organization that supports the development of technology standards in the US by providing a framework for fair standards development and quality conformity assessment systems.
HL7® Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR) HL7® FHIR® is an interoperability standard intended to facilitate the exchange of healthcare information between organizations.
IETF The Internet Engineering Task Force is a large, open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of internet architecture and the smooth operation of the internet.
INCITS The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards is an ANSI-accredited standards development organization composed of information technology developers. It is the central US forum dedicated to creating technology standards for the next generation of innovation.
ISO/IEC JTC 1 The Joint Technical Committee (JTC 1) for information technology was created by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission. Its purpose is to address international information technology standardization.
JCP The Java Community Process is the mechanism for developing the standard technical specifications for Java technology.
Linux Foundation The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit technology consortium that was founded in 2000 to standardize Linux, support its growth, and promote its commercial adoption. They also provide a neutral, trusted home for developers to collaborate on open software projects, such as the Cloud Native Foundation (CNCF). CNCF hosts projects like Kubernetes and Prometheus to make cloud native universal and sustainable.
OASIS The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards is a nonprofit, international consortium whose mission is to develop open source software and standards through global collaboration and community.
W3C The World Wide Web Consortium is the main international standards organization for the web.

Our work with industry leaders

Building on our continued commitment to multicloud innovation and our leadership and contributions with the International Organization for Standardization, we collaborate with industry leaders to provide our customers with standards-based solutions.

Red Hat

Oracle and Red Hat have collaborated to offer customers a greater choice of operating systems to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Thanks to this strategic collaboration, customers can now run Red Hat Enterprise Linux on OCI as a supported operating system, improving the experience for organizations that rely on both OCI and Red Hat Enterprise Linux to fuel digital transformation and migrate mission-critical applications to the cloud.

Oracle now offers Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, providing customers with more choice for multicloud architecture. By securely connecting OCI and Microsoft Azure over a low-latency, private connection and simplifying access to enterprise-grade Oracle databases with Oracle Database Service for Azure, we’ve given customers the ability to use the best capabilities of both cloud environments.

There’s a well-known myth that you can’t run real applications across two clouds. We can now dispel that myth as we give Oracle and Microsoft customers the ability to easily test and demonstrate the value of combining Oracle databases with Azure applications. There is no need for deep skills on either of our platforms or complex configurations—anyone can use the Azure Portal to harness the power of our two clouds together.

With a nod to Oracle's strong leadership in the ISO SC38 committee to create heterogenous cloud environments, Ampere and Oracle created Arm-based Kubernetes clusters running under the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) that use the Ampere A1 Cloud Native compute platform in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure(OCI). The choice, interoperability and maturity of this cross-platform service provides opportunities for easy migration and further innovation for our customers.

The Java Community Process (JCP) program has a long and trusted history of establishing specifications that are the foundation of applications developed by millions of developers running on billions of processors. The entire software industry benefits from this and the coupling with the incredible pace of innovation happening at OpenJDK, which drives the standard Reference Implementation for the JCP program. Oracle is proud to stand with our partners who have been moving the Java ecosystem forward for almost 30 years.

Oracle Releases Java 20

New release delivers seven JDK Enhancement Proposals to increase developer productivity, improve the Java language, and enhance the platform’s performance, stability, and security.

Performance and Java platform compatibility are critical for customers deploying Java-based workloads on Ampere A1 shapes in OCI, and on premise. Recognizing this, Oracle and Ampere experts have collaborated to significantly increase Java performance across OpenJDK versions, working within the Java specifications and programs such as those led by the Java Community Program (JCP), and specifically Java Specification Request (JSR) 395 covering Java SE 20. Thanks to this collaboration and our open specifications, Java performance is up to 30% higher with the latest JDKs. Even legacy workloads can benefit, including the recently announced Enterprise Performance Pack, which allows customers to get JDK 17 performance on JDK 8 applications.
