Enterprise Development Platform founded on Oracle Linux and VirtualBox

Simon Coter
Director of Product Management

"Tried, tested, and tuned for enterprise workloads, Oracle Linux is used by developers worldwide. Oracle Linux’s Yum server provides easy access to Linux developer and preview software channels. Thousands of EPEL packages have been built and signed by Oracle for security and compliance. Software collections include recent versions of Python, PHP, Node.js, nginx, and more. Oracle Cloud developer tools such as Terraform, SDKs, and CLI are available for improved experience. Oracle VM VirtualBox is the most popular cross-platform virtualization software. In this session learn about using Oracle Linux and Oracle VM VirtualBox as an enterprise development platform"

Oracle Linux is a real Enterprise and Open Linux Distribution:

  • It's free to use
  • It's free to distribute
  • It's free to update

It's free to use just because the Oracle Linux ISOs can be downloaded and used for free, no subscription is required!

It's free to distribute, because the software can be shared and installed on more and many different environment!

It's free to update, because you can get access to all the updates by the Oracle Linux Yum Server and, again, no subscription is required!

On Oracle Linux Yum Server you can also find channels dedicated to developers, like:

  • Software Collection Library 3.0 for Oracle Linux 7
  • EPEL channel, with packages built and signed by Oracle for security and compliance
  • Development channel, with packages dedicated to development utilities (like VirtualBox) and/or cloud utilities

Oracle VM VirtualBox is the most popular cross-platform virtualization software; it allows to run any x86 Operating System on top on your laptop/desktop environment; it does not matter which OS you've installed on the Host, the same VirtualBox release is available for Linux, Windows and MacOS.

By having Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on your host development platform you can really create a transparent layer that will get your Virtual Machines (dev environments) running on top, independent from the host operating system!  

You can learn more about how your business can get advantage of those technologies during the Oracle Open World "Oracle Linux and Oracle VM VirtualBox: The Enterprise Development Platform" session at Oracle Open World on Monday, Oct 22, 9:00AM in room 152, Moscone South.

To learn more about Oracle Linux and to speak with product experts, visit the Oracle Infrastructure Technologies showcase, booth #120, located in Moscone South, on the right side, just past the Autonomous Database showcase.

See you there!
