The Oracle Solaris Hardware Compatibility List (HCL)

The Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) identifies hardware, both SPARC & x86 (servers, desktop and laptop systems and a selection of peripheral devices) which are compatible with the Oracle Solaris Operating System. The HCL also provides information about available software support.


Note (Oracle Solaris 11.4): Please note that there are several Oracle Solaris EOFs which could affect platform support using Oracle Solaris 11.4. We are in the process of identifying those that are fully supported, and recommend testing of existing hardware systems and components before putting them into a production environment with Oracle Solaris 11.4.

Hardware Certification

Oracle provides a free download of the Oracle Hardware Certification Test Suite (Oracle HCTS) application to enable Oracle Partners and customers to certify their systems and components with the Oracle Solaris OS on SPARC and x86 platforms. The systems and components that are tested using the Oracle HCTS can be included in the Oracle Solaris HCL as Certified or Reported to Work, pending the result of the audit of the submission by Oracle. The systems and components that are tested by the end user without going through the Oracle Solaris Hardware Compatibility Program by using Oracle HCTS can also be included in HCL as "Reported to Work".

Note: Use Oracle HCTS 5.8 to submit Oracle HCTS test results to Oracle as per the Program outline. After August 1. 2017, submissions using HCTS 5.7 will not be accepted.

Oracle Premier Support offerings are only available for systems listed as Certified - Please contact the HCL team if you wish to list your systems on the Oracle Solaris HCL.
