Why Oracle Linux
Score 10 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux
We are using Oracle Linux as the main operating system for all our servers either Database servers or Middleware servers. Actually, we don't face major issues with Oracle Linux. It is very stable, easy to use, and easy to manage. The most important thing is Oracle Linux is fully supported by Oracle for free if you are using Engineering systems like Oracle Database Appliance (ODA), Oracle Exadata, or Oracle Private Appliance (PCA). It is 24*7 support in which can create a ticket in a few minutes and get the support in a very reasonable time based on the severity of the issue.
- We would like to see more auto patch update process
We have managed to upgrade Oracle Forms from one operating system to Oracle Linux. The migration process went easy and smooth. We have managed to get every single feature that was working in the old platform to be working as is on Oracle Linux plus the new features that Oracle Linux provides such as high security.
Perfect product in terms of security, performance, scalability, and manageability
