Linux is a foundational operating system for enterprise IT organizations. In fact, according to the Linux Foundation, Linux is the primary platform for cloud and is experiencing continual growth. But are all Linux distributions the same?


In this white paper, the analyst company, Evaluator Group reviews Oracle Linux, taking a close look at what differentiates it based on input from users that have moved their environments from Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Oracle Linux.

In-depth interviews were conducted with customers from healthcare, financial services, consumer and enterprise software, and insurance companies. The findings show the economic impact of Linux- specifically Oracle Linux in their environment, including:

  • Increased application performance 
  • More stable operating environment–resulting in fewer outages
  • Reduction in annual OS support costs by 20% to 50% 
  • Increased automation leading to faster deployment of new IT resources 
  • Reductions in IT management time
