    Announcement:

    Oracle Fusion Applications on IBM POWER Systems with the AIX operating system

    Oracle and IBM have jointly agreed to end support of Oracle's Fusion Applications V1 for the IBM AIX® Operating System on IBM  Power Systems™. Oracle Fusion Applications customers are overwhelmingly deploying Fusion Applications in the cloud in Software as a Service (SaaS) rather than in a traditional on-premises model and as a result, the Fusion Applications product running on AIX has not seen the anticipated uptake by customers since its availability in October of 2011.

    POWEROracle Fusion Applications V1 Release 8 (11.1.8.0.0) and V1 Release 9 (11.1.9.0.0) will be made available for IBM AIX 7.1 on IBM Power Systems™ this year. Customers wishing to receive continued Premium Support beyond Release 9 must migrate their application middle-tiers and web tiers to another supported platform. IBM customers can continue to run the Fusion Applications Database Tier on IBM AIX 7.1 and Power Systems and can choose to run their middle-tiers on X86 Servers running either Linux™ or Windows™ Operating Systems.

    We are providing this information now so that any customers currently using the AIX operating system, or planning an implementation on the AIX operating system, can take the appropriate steps to ensure that they are on a supported platform before the end of Premium Support.

    Under the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy, existing Fusion V1 customers on AIX will continue to receive Premier Support in the form of patches to Release 9.through October 2016. But no new features or functionality will be made available after Release 9 except by migrating to a later release on a supported platform.

    IBM and Oracle are committed to the success of their mutual customers and are prepared to assist in planning and implementing a move to a supported platform. Please contact your Oracle or IBM account representative for assistance.
