Non optimised Linux distributions can cost significantly more as many organisations over provision or unknowingly pay a premium rate for their licenses. Distributions without a consistent and effective patch management strategy in place are vulnerable to performance slowdowns, random reboots or cyber-attacks, that compromise sensitive data or operations.
Even planned downtime in your Linux data centre distribution can put your company at risk , as businesses are under considerable pressure to provide 99.9% availability of their applications, systems and services to their staff and customers.
Oracle Linux has been consistently one of the fastest growing enterprise Linux distributions in recent years. Engineered for open cloud infrastructure, it delivers leading performance, scalability, reliability and security for enterprise SaaS and PaaS workloads as well as traditional enterprise applications.
Much of this growth comes from clients migrating from other Linux distributions, in order to save on licensing costs and take advantage of Oracle’s OS optimisation for its own solution stacks.
Oracle Linux Support offers access to award-winning Oracle support resources and Linux support specialists, zero-downtime updates using Ksplice, management tools such as Oracle Enterprise Manager and lifetime support, all at a low cost.
