Yes it is, they just do not state if its based on the opensourced xen-source
or the closed-source parts like xen express.
Guess the opensource-part since they mention 'based on opensource software'.

Looks like
- xen-kernel and probably unbreakable linux in dom0
- a dedicated server for hosting a webbased management-software

The nice idea is they can ship oracle with the whole os around it as domU-
disk. So if a para-virtualized freebsd should beat linux in some corners
they could just switch this, provided the customer keeps his hold inter-
faces for managing the oracle-installation of course.
Wondering if they will also support the application-loaded domUs on xen-
source based dom0s.
