Friday Spotlight: Oracle Linux 7!

Happy SysAdmin Day and happy Friday, everyone! We’ll cover a couple of items in our spotlight this week.

First, and I’m sure this is no surprise, we’d like to spotlight the release of Oracle Linux 7! This release is another milestone in bringing the latest innovations and tools to our customers. You can read the press release, listen to Oracle’s Wim Coekaerts, read the blog post, read the data sheet, and the Frequently Asked Questions, review the documentation, or download it and give it a spin right now.

Second, we wanted to spotlight the release of the new Oracle Exadata Database Machine X4-8. This machine packs some serious punch and runs--you guessed it!--Oracle Linux. If you have any question about how well Oracle Linux can scale as an enterprise platform, you don’t have to look any further than this amazing pairing of hardware and software.

We’ll see you next week!
