Microsoft Corp. and Oracle Corp. on Monday announced a partnership that will enable customers to run Oracle software on Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure. Customers will be able to deploy Oracle software, including Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server, on Windows platforms and receive full support from Oracle.

“Microsoft is deeply committed to giving businesses what they need, and clearly that is the ability to run enterprise workloads in private clouds, public clouds and, increasingly, across both. Now our customers will be able to take advantage of the flexibility our unique hybrid cloud solutions offer for their Oracle applications, middleware and databases, just like they have been able to do on Windows Server for years,” said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft.

As part of this partnership, Oracle will certify and support Oracle software – including Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server – on Windows Server Hyper-V and in Windows Azure. Microsoft will also offer Java, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server to Windows Azure customers, and Oracle will make Oracle Linux available to Windows Azure customers. Java developers, IT professionals and businesses will benefit from the flexibility to deploy fully supported Oracle software to Windows Server Hyper-V and Windows Azure.

“Our customers’ IT environments are changing rapidly to meet the dynamic nature of the world today. At Oracle, we are committed to providing greater choice and flexibility to customers by providing multiple deployment options for our software, including on-premises, as well as public, private, and hybrid clouds. This collaboration with Microsoft extends our partnership and is important for the benefit of our customers,” said Mark Hurd, president of Oracle.
