The Oracle Linux operating system is engineered for an open cloud infrastructure. It delivers leading performance, scalability and reliability for enterprise SaaS and PaaS workloads as well as traditional enterprise applications. Oracle Linux Support offers access to award-winning Oracle support resources and Linux support specialists, zero-downtime updates using Ksplice, additional management tools such as Oracle Enterprise Manager, and lifetime support, all at a low cost. And unlike many other commercial Linux distributions, Oracle Linux is easy to download, completely free to use, distribute, and update.
The Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 4 Update 6 uses the 4.1.12-112.14.1 version and includes several new features, functionality and bug fixes across a range of subsystems.
For more details on these and other new features and changes, please consult the Release Notes for the UEK R4 Update 6 for Oracle Linux 6 or the Release Notes for the UEK R4 Update 6 for Oracle Linux 7.
Oracle Linux can be downloaded, used and distributed free of charge and all updates and errata are freely available. This allows you to decide which of your systems require a support subscription and makes Oracle Linux an ideal choice for your development, testing and production systems. You decide which support coverage is the best for each of your systems individually, while keeping all of your systems up-to-date and secure. For customers with Oracle Linux Premier Support, you also receive access to zero-downtime kernel updates using Oracle Ksplice and support for Oracle OpenStack.
UEK R4 Update 6 is fully compatible with the previous UEK R4 updates. The kernel ABI for UEK R4 will remain unchanged in all subsequent updates to the initial release. In this release, there are changes to the kernel ABI relative to UEK R3 that require recompilation of third-party kernel modules on the system. Before installing UEK R4, verify its support status with your application vendor.
