It's well suited for those workloads that require very high transaction processing in a secure environment. it provides SLA credits in case it does not meet SLA. It is regularly patched and is performance oriented. It is widely adopted by organizations and is highly scalable. I recommend Oracle Linux.

Definitely suitable for enterprise and for open cloud infrastructure. Use it if you want something which is easy to download and deploy. On the other hand, for non-enterprise-level software solutions, it is fine to go with other, more community-supported Linux distributions. Very good performance of Oracle software or/and hardware is provided out-of-the-box.

It is a very good product and a top choice, as long as you are using an Oracle eco-system. It comes pre-tuned and optimized for Oracle databases out of the box. Very secure and stable. Easier to install and configure compared to other linux versions.

The experience we had with the support was very positive (although we almost never had to call for support, since the system is pretty stable).

The best scenario for use is definitely server uses like web services, microservices, network monitoring, databases, and websites. I think that desktop for enterprise users on Oracle Linux is not the best option. It lacks some of Windows characteristics like Active Directory Group Policy Objects, and plug and play compatibility with printers and scanners.

Oracle Linux is best suited when you are an Oracle shop more or less. [It's well suited when] You are using Oracle Database and other Oracle Middleware components and these need to be fine tuned for running high performance loads at peak throughput. It is less suited when you are using non-Oracle virtualization layer in on-prem deployments.

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.

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.

If you are looking for a RedHat like OS that offers virtually everything a RHEL would, without the cost, then you need to start looking at Oracle Linux. The benefits outweigh the negatives by far.

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.
