Continuing the companies’ close collaboration, Oracle, Ampere, and Lenovo have completed joint development and testing to qualify Oracle Linux on new Lenovo servers.
The Lenovo ThinkSystem HR330A and HR350A include the powerful Ampere eMAG™ Arm® (aarch64) processor and are certified and supported, through the Oracle HCL program, with Oracle Linux 7 Update 6 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) Release 5. UEK5 is based on the upstream LTS (long-term stable) kernel version 4.14 and is designed and recommended for enterprise workloads requiring stability, scalability, and performance.
Oracle Linux 7 Update 6 (aarch64) is available from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. Customers deploying these world-class systems deserve world-class support, and that’s just what they’ll get with Oracle Linux support. Oracle offers two levels of support subscriptions for Oracle Linux: Basic and Premier.
As always, to support developers and users, Oracle Linux is free to download, use, and distribute. All Oracle Linux updates are freely available on the Oracle Linux yum server, to help users match development and test environments to the same patch level used in production.
