Last December, Oracle became a corporate sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation and announced a set of plans to add OpenStack compatibility or integration to a range of its products.
And when Oracle announced Solaris 11.2 in April, executive vice president of Oracle's systems business John Fowler said "By engineering the OS, the virtualisation, SDN and OpenStack together, Oracle Solaris 11.2 provides a complete cloud solution."
The company has now released Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux distribution, based on the OpenStack Icehouse release.
Advantages of the distribution include integration with MySQL Enterprise Edition and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance, high availability via Oracle Clusterware, and support for the Ceph object storage software.
Oracle provides single-source support for its customers, including infrastructure, Oracle Linux, OpenStack, the back-end database, and the guest operating system.
"Oracle is working with the OpenStack community and our partners to provide greater choice and interoperability for customers," said Oracle senior vice president for Linux and virtualisation engineering Wim Coekaerts.
"With Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux, customers can benefit from an enterprise-scale OpenStack solution. The flexibility we provide makes it easier for our customers to manage their environments."
