We use Oracle Linux templates for Oracle VM Server to provision our clone environments quickly. It is a very stable platform for web services and database interface connectors.

In some cases, it is being selectively rolled out to replace legacy Unix systems. Plus in a few isolated cases, I've helped to replace Windows database servers with Oracle Linux. The common theme across all these different types of organizations is that they want the best Linux for running Oracle, which is pre-tuned and optimized as well as well supported by the database vendor.

  • memory management
  • kernel pre-tuned
  • excellent Oracle support
  • well documented solutions for issues on Oracle support site
  • better adoption by all cloud providers
  • better integration with webmin (a popular, free Linux admin tool)
  • Oracle provided plug-ins for popular monitoring tools like Zabbix
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.

  • Sometimes customer support from Oracle can be challenging.
The software does really well in systems that work with databases. It does really well in its connectivity to Oracle database applications. It also provides a great deal of stability and can provide fairly stable functionality for remote systems that have users requiring limited assistance. Installing Oracle Linux is fairly easy and less time consuming than other Linux versions.

It's relatively simple for use by all the IT department. It is pretty easy to get things done with it, but it’s not that exciting to use at all. Very useful user controls that can make it practical and helpful for getting your work done. It's useful for the professional work setting, for sure.
  • It is good for emails and correspondence servers
  • The software is very helpful, and I like the cloud-centered interface that improves the interconnectivity of it
  • Databases (Oracle of course!!) servers, virtual and RAC configs.
  • It's often very slow to use
  • Very displeasing aesthetics for the graphical interface appearance
  • More compatibility with other vendors
Perfect for:
  • Database servers, Oracle overall.
  • Mail servers (in my experience)
Not recommended for:
  • Main desktop
  • Monitoring server
