Cisco IOS

Well suited for building management networks across the organization as it has been reliable without much downtime. Since it has great switching qualities, it suites well for data center and end-user connectivity using access switches. It might not be the best for routing, as other XOR software has proven to be superior for routing.

Oracle Linux

Oracle Linux is a very good and useful combination of the stability of Rhel and support for Oracle Databases. Our organisation uses an application and a database combo that we offer to the client but after the inclusion of Oracle Linux into our infrastructure, the provision and the operation cost are reduced significantly. So I would recommend using Oracle Linux when you are using multiple on-premises DB servers and want to move to a more secure, organised, and fast operating system.

Oracle Linux

Oracle Linux 8.4
Based on 86 answers
One of the most robust Linux distributions is Redhat, its forks have given rise to infinite business models and distributions that have defined the market. Oracle Linux, obviously developed by the tech giant Oracle, is constantly releasing a flexible and incredibly stable product while adding its own bunch of new features. Among the most notable is the "Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel" (UEK).

Alternatives Considered

Cisco IOS

We have found other Cisco software to be filled with added functionalities as compared to iOS. New NCS software has certain programmability features that are advantageous to legacy iOS software but are more complex to use for some users. Hence, we still have most areas of the network that functions using iOS software.

Oracle Linux

The Oracle Linux definitely comes on the top when it comes down to being easily available as its platform-independent. This is where the masses lie as we have moved to a hybrid work environment where keeping everyone on the same devices is no more required. Linux stands out as it allows the industry workers to implement BYOD in all environments. Software as a service is truly done by Linux. I don’t want to switch to other platforms anymore.

  • Zero-downtime automated patching for kernel, hypervisor, and critical user-space libraries.
  • Optimized–out of the box–for Oracle software.
  • A single support offering includes Linux, virtualization, management, HA, and cloud-native computing tools.
  • Available on-premise, in the cloud, and as Autonomous Linux.
  • The system has a graphical and command-line interface, which makes it very complete and superior to other similar products.
  • Security
  • Compatible with multiple types of hardware. If we need to upgrade our hardware, the idea of not having to change OSs or platforms is a huge benefit.
  • Managing Memory usage.
