Pros and Cons

  • Apache + PHP + MySQL is one of the most used combinations we have. And it is faster than Windows.
  • Many open-source tools we use are for Oracle Linux.
  • The desktop experience is much needed, so we can move our Windows Desktop users to Oracle Linux Desktop.

Pros and Cons

  • Oracle Linux works very well with Oracle Database (used) and can be fine tuned for it.
  • Oracle Linux is also does very well in security and bug fixes that may not be available in the open source Linux or RedHat version.
  • Support is the biggest strength for Oracle Linux as it can be combined with the support of other Oracle components (other middleware, applications and database) to get quicker resolution and configuration specific bug fixes.
  • With Oracle Linux sometimes it will take time to get the latest patches and feature upgrades from RHL / open source code base. This can certainly be improved.
  • Compatibility issues when using Oracle Linux with non-Oracle virtualization software (especially on-prem deployments). For example, Oracle Linux with VMware.
  • Issues with applying the most up-to-date patches and bugs to Oracle Linux while running. This should be resolved with Oracle Autonomous Linux.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • The operating system could be improved in its compatibility with older applications.
  • There are fewer users of Oracle Linux than other versions, potentially making it harder to obtain outside support.
  • Sometimes customer support from Oracle can be challenging.

  • It's often very slow to use

  • More compatibility with other vendors
