Ksplice is designed to work in many different computing environments. Because upgrading the kernel on any running system is a hassle, we want you to be able to deploy Ksplice as widely as possible. As a consequence of this, there are a number of ways to set up a Ksplice installation for your Oracle Linux infrastructure.
As the first part of a series of articles on Ksplice best practices, we've published a guide to deploying Ksplice on the Oracle Technology Network. This guide explains the different types of Ksplice deployments, helps you choose which one is right for your environment, and shows you how to get started. We've also produced a video describing these deployment options, as well as explaining how you can use Ksplice to diagnose kernel issues.
Once you've decided on how you'll install Ksplice you can find more information in the Ksplice User's Guide or through your normal Oracle support channels. Ksplice is available exclusively as part of Oracle Linux Premier Support.
