Oracle Releases Oracle Linux 6.5

With Oracle Linux 6.5, the latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3 is installed as the default kernel, enabling customers and partners to test, validate and certify against the most up-to-date Oracle Linux distribution.
Freely available for download from Oracle’s Software Delivery Cloud, Oracle Linux 6.5 features full integration with DTrace, support for Linux Containers, and InfiniBand updates.
Oracle Linux 6.5 also includes new security features such as: the ability for applications to share a cryptographic data store that crypto toolkits can use for processing trusted certificates; and smartcard authentication support in a larger number of application subsystems for single sign on (SSO).
Oracle Linux provides the performance and reliability to support business-critical workloads such as Oracle Database 12c, and is available on all x86-based Oracle Engineered Systems.
