Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux

In my previous experiences, I have worked with Oracle Linux (starting with the Oracle Unbreakable Linux version) across different kinds of organizations (port and logistics, then government). It was used for Oracle Database servers because of the Oracle-oriented optimizations and pre-tuning.
  • Oracle-oriented kernel pre-tuning
  • Oracle support
  • Excellent performance, security and stability
  • Graphical interface could be improved
  • Excellent for Oracle databases. Inherent security and stability.
  • The pre-tuning and optimizations out of the box speed the projects.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
Oracle Linux and Red Hat Linux are very similar, and the both are great choices. Anyway, the out of the box enhancements that come with Oracle Linux is an aspect to consider if you are using Oracle products.

Do you think Oracle Linux delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Oracle Linux's feature set?


Did Oracle Linux live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Oracle Linux go as expected?


Would you buy Oracle Linux again?


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).
