Oracle Linux

If you are going to deploy Oracle on an Intel or AMD based server then Oracle Linux is by far your best choice. The operating system is built and packaged from the ground up to be the single best and easiest OS for running an Oracle database. But while it may be a custom solution, it's probably 98% or more the same as Redhat and CentOS from an OS admin point of view - so easy to hire resources as any Linux admin can work with Oracle Linux with almost zero changes to their existing practices.

Oracle Linux

  • Oracle Linux is a clone of Red Hat Linux, a well-known version of Linux and is very stable. This helps in maintaining fairly error-free systems.
  • The operating system kernel can be updated without having to reboot the system, a potential time saver.
  • Oracle Linux comes in fairly easy to implement packages that work well with Oracle databases.

Return on Investment

Oracle Linux

  • The positive impact of implementing Oracle Linux is that it has reduced our costs of licences by 60% With one Linux Server, we consolidated 3 Windows Servers, giving us more memory available and the best use of processors and less storage needed for the same tasks.
