Introducing the Ksplice Offline client

We are excited to announce the availability of a new feature in our Ksplice service, known as the Ksplice offline client.  This new option eliminates the requirement on a direct connection to the internet to apply zero-downtime Ksplice patches.  The Ksplice offline client allows the user to create a local YUM repository which will mirror the Ksplice channel from ULN (Unbreakable Linux Network).  Once you have mirrored the channel on your local network, you simply apply the patch using the same Ksplice tools and commands you are already familiar with.  Ksplice is available to all customers with Oracle Linux Premier or Oracle Linux Premier Limited support.  Take a look at Wim's blog, where he provides an excellent example for how to setup and use this new service and if you are using Red Hat and want to try Ksplice, you can sign up for a 30 Day Free trial
