Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux

Oracle Linux is the OS that our monitoring platform lives on. The stability that it provides makes it a great choice for any production environment. The ability to provide a scalable, secure, supported environment has been welcomed by many.


  • 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


  • Support is lacking/non-existent
  • Cloud compatibility
  • Can be slow
  • Stability - the OS has provided stable basis for our platforms for multiple years
  • Security - we have saved countless hours not spending them on OS level remediations
We have benefited with the stability of Oracle Linux and cost compared to that of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), Windows Server, CentOS, and Ubuntu Linux. As far as combinations of cost, stability, security, support, Oracle Linux is the best overall choice.
Windows Server, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
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.
