Now Available: Zero Downtime Updates for Oracle Linux with Ksplice

Ksplice, which was recently acquired by Oracle in July 2011, is now available as part of Oracle Linux. With Ksplice, users can update the Linux operating system (OS) kernel, while it is running, without a reboot or any interruption. Only Oracle Linux offers this unique capability, making it possible for users to make important Linux updates without burdening the team with the operational cost and disruption of rebooting for every update to Linux.

Available at no additional charge to existing and new Oracle Linux Premier Support customers, Oracle’s Ksplice Uptrack service is easy to access. Oracle Linux Premier Support subscribers can request a Ksplice access key through Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN). After installing Ksplice, you can easily apply all important Linux kernel updates without needing to reboot. No configuration changes or initial reboot is needed to install. Under the hood, Ksplice loads a Linux kernel module that rewrites portions of the running kernel to apply the updates.
