One of the advantages of deploying Oracle Linux on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is that new Oracle Linux images are updated frequently so you always have easy access to the latest updated software. New updated images for Oracle Linux 7.4 and 6.9 built in November 2017, are now available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for standard VM and bare metal shapes. Enhancements include an updated Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (4.1.12-103.9.2) for Oracle Linux, bug fixes, and software package updates.
