Oracle software on Windows Azure is now generally available

Oracle software is now generally available for Windows Azure, marking “an exciting milestone as we move the partnership with Oracle to the next step,” writes Stephen B. Martin, Windows Azure marketing & operations general manager.

The partnership with Oracle was announced last year, and reflects one of the “core tenets” of Windows Azure, to provide customers with an open and flexible platform.

Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server and Java are now generally available with license-included virtual machine images, Martin writes. These images are located in the Windows Azure Image Gallery.

You can read Martin’s post on the Windows Azure blog, and learn more details on the Windows Azure website.
