In May 2017, IT Central Station's readers were asked to rank operating systems and based on those reviews, Oracle Linux was named the 2017 top operating system for business purposes.
It can often be difficult to compare the value of one operating system over another. Pricing is obviously an important consideration, but there are so many other factors that should be considered when making such a fundamental platform decision.
From the beginning, Oracle Linux was designed to provide a simpler way for Oracle customers to get full-stack support from the operating system to the application from an enterprise-class vendor that understands not just operating system, but all the really important things our customers actually need to run, like databases, middleware, applications and more recently, virtual machines and containers. To help ensure the most value for our customers, we've added additional components and products to Oracle Linux without increasing complexity.
One of our customers that saw the biggest increases in efficiency and performance after migrating to Oracle Linux is Intel and this year at OpenWorld, they will be presenting the fascinating story of how they migrated their production, mission-critical manufacturing databases from Microsoft Windows to Oracle Linux with no outages or downtime. You'll also learn about the significant performance increase they gained on exactly the same hardware.

Coming to Oracle OpenWorld? I will be giving a brief tour of all the other add-on packages that are supported on Oracle Linux at no extra cost and then introducing Intel at the "Why Choose Oracle Linux: The Value of Enterprise Linux" session on Monday, October 22nd at 5:45pm in Room 2000, Moscone West. You can also learn more about Oracle Linux directly from the product experts by visiting the Oracle Infrastructure Technologies showcase (booth #120) in Moscone South next to the Arena and just past the Autonomous Database showcase.
