Oracle contributes data-integrity code to Linux kernel

Network World: "Oracle has contributed data-integrity protection code, partly developed with the hardware vendor Emulex, to the Linux kernel, the vendors announced Tuesday.

The code helps maintain 'comprehensive data integrity' as information 'moves from application to database, and from [the] Linux operating system to disk storage,' according to a statement. It also lowers the possibility that erroneous data will get written to disk.

The companies' effort is meant to help data-center administrators track and address corrupted data quickly, lowering costs and downtime"
