Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux

We working with Exadata boxes where Oracle Linux is installed as a main operating system (X6 and X7 Exadata systems). We don't have any problems with Oracle Linux server operating system. We get used to patching it on regular basis (twice a year). Oracle Linux server is used by our customers.
  • Stability
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Easy to patch.
  • Easy to investigate issues.
  • I have no idea here as this is an operating system and the main role is to be stable.
  • I cannot provide you here any number as we work only on customer's systems.
  • Question should be address to the Exadata owner.
I can give 10 as we never contact oracle support for Oracle Linux level :) This is a good factor in comparison to other oracle products such as oracle RDBMS etc. :)

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

Yes

Are you happy with Oracle Linux's feature set?

Yes

Did Oracle Linux live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Oracle Linux go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Oracle Linux again?

Yes

As we use it in the predefined environment (Exadata boxes) we find it very suitable and stable there. Also for any test env out of Exadata like virtual boxes is also good. I guess also it is a very good starting point for all those who want to get familiar with Linux operating system.
