Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) provides complete cloud infrastructure and platform services for virtually every workload and is the designed to run any application faster and more securely for less. OCI, Oracle Cloud Applications, and Oracle Engineered Systems are powered by Oracle Linux, an open source OS optimized for performance, scalability, reliability, and security for Oracle and non-Oracle applications alike. Oracle Linux is used extensively by tens of thousands of customers globally. Thousands of independent software vendors (ISVs) certify their software on Oracle Linux, and many customers rely on Oracle Linux to run their mission-critical applications on OCI, while achieving transformational results and value.

Oracle Linux delivers a cost-effective cloud operating environment. OCI subscriptions provide many Oracle Linux benefits including 24/7 expert Oracle Linux support, self-patching Oracle Autonomous Linux, OS management, and zero-downtime updates using Oracle Ksplice at no extra cost.

Because Oracle Linux is application binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, many OCI customers have switched to Oracle Linux. CentOS Linux customers have switched to Oracle Linux for a stable RHEL-compatible alternative. OCI customers that have switched to running Oracle Linux enjoy all that Oracle Linux Support and the operating environment have to offer at no extra cost.
