Statement of Direction Oracle Database 11g Release 2 - Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

 

Introduction


Oracle has been a leading provider of database technology on Microsoft Windows platforms since 1994. Oracle Database offers unprecedented ease of use, manageability, ease of development, scalability, availability and security on Windows, which can be leveraged by small & medium businesses as well as enterprises. Oracle Database provides seamless integration with Windows platforms, services and development environment, enabling customers to take full advantage of both Microsoft and Oracle technologies.

In this Statement of Direction, Oracle Corporation provides a road map for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 running on Microsoft's newest operating systems: Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2. This road map does not relate to Oracle Database 11g Release 2's planned support for any other Windows platform. Also note that Oracle (like with every release on Windows) does not certify against individual Service Packs. Oracle certifies against OS releases, and Service Packs are supported as being part of the OS.
