Oracle and Dell

Technical certification is a foregone conclusion thanks to our partnership. Dell Hardware listed on the Oracle Hardware Certification Lists (HCL) are all qualified to run Solaris. This qualification serves as a reassurance to customers that their configuration has been tested and is enterprise-ready. Dell hardware will continue to be added and qualified over time, expanding the already large list of fully supported systems.

The Oracle Solaris Hardware Certification List (HCL) provides users with information about x86 servers, x86 64-bit servers certified for Oracle Solaris.In order to get support from Dell or Oracle for Solaris OS on Dell PowerEdge, Tower and Desktop, you must be using a certified server. Dell systems certified for Solaris have gone through rigorous testing standards as determined by the latest Hardware Certification Test Suite (HCTS). Dell systems listed on Oracle Solaris HCL as "certified" have been tested and validated by Dell and Oracle engineering teams and have met the certification test criteria.
