The awards were presented at last week's LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in Boston, where an independent panel of Linux and open source industry professionals recognized Oracle Database XE as the most innovative and important database solution running on Linux. Divided into 12 product categories, the awards recognize product and service innovations.

"It is an honor to be recognized as the best database solution on the Linux platform," said Monica Kumar, director of product marketing, Oracle. "This award underscores Oracle's long-standing commitment to the Linux and developer communities. With Oracle Database XE, developers, DBAs, students and ISVs can realize the benefits of using enterprise-class database technology for free."

Since introducing the first database to run on Linux in 1998, Oracle has been committed to furthering Linux adoption. With its production debut in February 2006, Oracle Database XE has received strong global uptake by Java, .NET, PHP and database developers; database administrators (DBA); students; and independent software vendors (ISV) who are using it to develop and deploy applications on Linux and Windows. Built on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base, Oracle Database XE is fully compatible with the entire family of Oracle Databases, and enables a simple upgrade path to Oracle Standard Edition One, Oracle Standard Edition and Oracle Enterprise Edition. In addition, Oracle Database XE allows developers and non-developers to take full advantage of Oracle Application Express for rapid Web application development and deployment, using a simple Web browser interface.
