Oracle said Friday that core SAP applications are now certified for use on its Exadata database machine.

SAP applications based on SAP NetWeaver 7.x certified with Oracle's 11g Release 2 database can now be deployed on the Exadata line-up. Those SAP applications include ERP and Business Warehouse among others.

Despite the applications competition between the two companies, SAP software and Oracle databases often ride shotgun in the enterprise. If Exadata is going to get widespread adoption, it needs SAP certification.

Oracle is positioning the Exadata portfolio as a server consolidation tool. While the certification is notable for Exadata, SAP applications are lined up with other hardware partners and databases too, notably IBM, HP among others.

It should also be noted that SAP's HANA platform and in-memory technology is aimed at Exadata. SAP HANA partners include IBM, HP, Dell, Intel, Fujitsu, Cisco, and Lenovo.
