Oracle Enterprise Linux porting to SPARC

CEO Larry Ellison made the disclosure in response to a question about Oracle’s Linux strategy at the company’s Sparc systems launch last Thursday

“We think Sparc will become clearly the best chip for running Oracle software. At that point we’d be nuts not to move Oracle Enterprise Linux there. We’re a ways away, but I think that’s definitely going to happen,” Ellison said.

It’s likely to happen in “the T4, T5 timeframe,” he said, referring to the next two versions of Sun’s Sparc processor. Oracle just released the Sparc T3 in September, and the T4 isn’t expected for a year or so.
