Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Linux

We purchased 12 Exadata appliances and used two more intermediate servers to support data administration and backup activities. Altogether there are 14 servers that use Oracle Linux in a critical environment and in relation to the database. The stability of Oracle and the ease of the commands commonly used in Linux provide an excellent opportunity to combine the best of both worlds.
  • Usual linux comand syntax
  • Ease of patching
  • kernel stability
  • The licensing is expensive.
  • Oracle Linux, needs to support more packages.
  • Zabbix is not recommended for install on Exadata Servers
  • The licensing is expensive.
  • Each core must be licensed
  • You cannot count with your needed package be avaiable for install
Like all other Oracle products it's fair and works, but not always fast as we hoped.

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?


I only work with Oracle databases, so I believe that my experience will be limited to the universe in which Oracle Linux can be used, initially with its primary use being in databases, I can strongly recommend it for this use without restrictions, except when used in Exatada where the installation of the Zabbix agent is not recommended, compromising the monitoring of the environment.
