Oracle Linux Premier Support Included in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Subscriptions

Oracle Linux is what powers our Engineered Systems and Oracle Cloud. So when you run Oracle Linux, you benefit from our extensive testing. But did you know that subscriptions for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) include Oracle Linux Premier Support at no extra charge? When you choose OCI, you can use Oracle Linux as part of a fully tested infrastructure stack and you don't need to budget extra for operating system support fees.

Running applications on Red Hat Enterprise LinuxTM (RHEL) and moving to Oracle Cloud? Switch to Oracle Linux and enjoy instant savings by eliminating Red Hat support fees! Running applications on CentOS and moving to Oracle Cloud? Switch to Oracle Linux and get Premier Support as a bonus! 

What does that mean?

24x7 support for Linux running business critical applications: Support by Linux experts who understand enterprise software. Single point of contact for cloud infrastructure, operating system and Oracle software. Access to an extensive Linux knowledge base.

Ksplice zero downtime updates: Apply critical kernel security patches without rebooting. 

Software Collection Library: Install recent versions of Python, PHP, NodeJS, nginx, etc. without risk of disrupting applications running on different versions of these components.

Comprehensive containers and container management support: Support for Docker and Oracle Linux Container Services for use with Kubernetes. Oracle Container Registry acts as a trusted source for patched Oracle software container images without incurring network charges.

Also included for OCI subscribers is Oracle Linux 5 Extended Support. This means any RHEL 5 systems you have can be covered under Oracle Linux 5 extended support until June 2020.
