Even planned downtime in your data centre can put your company at risk. Businesses are under considerable pressure to provide 99.9% availability of their applications, systems and services to their staff and customers.
Any outage leads to business disruption, which can lead to lost customers, transactions being cancelled or blocked and a loss of reputation or a tarnished brand. Often there are also regulatory penalties for companies who provide financial services.
Frequently, a Data Centre reboot is unavoidable as systems require updates and security patches to maintain performance and protect them from external attack. Minimising these periods of downtime are critical or any organisation.
Bell Integration can work with you to provide Ksplice which allows for live patching and significantly reduces the need to reboot, avoiding downtimes and improving availability.
Available to Oracle Linux customers as part of the Oracle Linux Premier Support package, Ksplice is an open-source extension of the Linux kernel that allows security patches to be applied to a running kernel without the need for reboots.
Ksplice supports only the patches that do not make significant semantic changes to kernel’s data structure.
Bell Integration worked with Oracle to migrate and manage a global telecommunication company's Linux solution, reducing licensing costs whilst providing unparalleled support and reliability.
We are an Oracle Gold Partner and have over 20 years’ experience in providing technology solutions which help optimise performance, reduce costs, ensure reliability and availability of your services.
