Are you running Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Take back your weekend and say goodbye to lengthy maintenance windows for kernel updates! With Ksplice, you can install kernel updates while the system is running. Stay secure and compliant without the hassle.

To give you a taste of one of the many features that are included in Oracle Linux Premier Support, we now offer a free 30-day Ksplice trial for RHEL systems. Give it a try and bring your Linux kernel up to date without rebooting (not even once to install it)!

For more information on this exciting technology, read Wim's OTN article on using Oracle Ksplice to update Oracle Linux systems without rebooting.

Watch Waseem Daher (one of the Ksplice founders) telling you more about Ksplice zero downtime updates in this screencast "Zero Downtime OS Updates with Ksplice"
