Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux

We use Oracle Linux as our main instances for running Oracle DB, Oracle Data Warehouse(and ODI), and OBIEE. The biggest business problem Oracle Linux addresses is that it's inside the "Oracle technology stack", meaning everything kinda falls into place when working exclusively with Oracle products.
  • A lot of the documentation on Oracle support/Oracle sites explain solutions using Oracle Linux
  • Running data warehouse/db/obiee on the same operating system
  • Documentation for Oracle Linux is significantly worse than redhat
  • Any patch, any problem can be solved using Oracle support. Meaning problems with Oracle Linux can be resolved quickly
I did not select oracle linux, it selected me :)
As long as its Linux, any of these distributions will work, it just depends where your job will land you.
As I said before, Oracle support is why corporations should choose Oracle.

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?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Oracle Linux go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Oracle Linux again?


Oracle Data Integrator, Oracle Database, Azure Synapse Analytics (Azure SQL Data Warehouse), Azure SQL Database
If you're working with Oracle DB, most likely i would suggest running it on Oracle Linux. Same goes for Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle Business Intelligence.
