Happy Friday! Our spotlight this week answers a question that we hear often about Oracle Ksplice:
One of the questions we receive from customers migrating from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) to Oracle Linux is: "Can I use Oracle Ksplice on my current systems or do I need to install Oracle Linux to use the service?"
This is an important question for many customers, since migrating between operating systems usually entails months of planning and a large number of complicated steps. But Oracle has really good news for you. Migrating from RHEL to Oracle Linux is a very simple process, requiring just a few steps, and does not require reinstallation of the operating system.
This simplicity also extends to Oracle Ksplice, which you can begin using immediately, without waiting for a maintenance window. Oracle generates the Ksplice patches needed to update your Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel, as is, the only decision you need to make is whether you want to use the online service or whether you want to implement the offline client.
Oracle Ksplice has been supporting users with zero-downtime updates for over 8 years, with more than 1 million Ksplice patches created. Our service is backed by experience and we are ready to support your most critical workloads, whether you migrate from Red Hat to Oracle Linux or deploy new Oracle Linux systems.
We'll see you next week!
