Peer review platforms are becoming increasingly important to buyers when making IT purchasing decisions. This blog will cover the reviews customers have been giving Oracle Linux on the Gartner Peer Insights.

Almost everyone is familiar with Gartner. Gartner is a world leading research and advisory company, trusted industry-wide to provide fair vendor evaluations through their published research and advisory services.

Additionally, a few years back, Gartner began to offer Gartner Peer Insights. This online forum allows verified customers to write anonymous and candid reviews about their product experiences. Available online, reviews can be easily accessed and read, facilitating the customer-to-customer reference vetting component commonplace for most major IT purchases. 

Oracle Linux is one of the many products a customer can evaluate on Gartner Peer Insights. Our team is excited to share that Oracle Linux has received largely positive reviews!*

One recent reviewer described it as “The Ultimate platform.” They go on to share: “The best things I like about it are performance and stability. I can get maximum performance with the least amount of effort and stability wise, I have never had a crash, I am yet to have one. Even when you have situations that may cause problems with other OS or other variants, Oracle enterprise Linux seems to do a better job of catching and handling those exceptions.”

Another said:  “Oracle Linux is highly efficient, stable and robust," and explained: “We use Oracle Linux for our servers and our team is quite happy with its performance. It is really flexible and can be customized based on your requirements. Oracle Linux is quite easy to configure, implement, and troubleshoot in case of any issues. Since this product is customized by Oracle for greater efficiency it can easily be integrated with other Oracle products."

Echoing the above sentiments, a third reviewer said Oracle Linux is the "most Powerfull [sic] and robust OS."  They went on to share “we are [sic] had started 5.0 now we are on Oracle Linux 6.8 we have lot experience it has stability to run very smooth and very secure.”
