Oracle has forged an alliance with Pacific HiTech (PHT), aiming at driving Oracle Linux applications into Asian markets. PHT claims a large installed corporate Linux base in Asia, and over 50 per cent of the Japanese Linux market. The alliance intends to develop enterprise-class applications for Linux, and in addition to helping Oracle build its Linux presence in Asia on the back of PHT's secure e-business portfolio, is seen by PHT as helping it develop in the other direction. "Our customers in the US and Asia will reap the performance, scalability and flexibility benefits of Oracle8 and Oracle Applications on the TurboLinux operating system," said Cliff Miller, PHT CEO. "Partnering with the world's leading provider of database solutions is key to our strategy in entering the US market and is a big step in keeping our promise to offer corporate customers the most robust Linux operating system on the market." The two companies will provide links between their Web sites and engage in joint promotional activities, and joint support of Linux development efforts. ® Click for more stories Click for story index
