This is a topic that comes up every now and again with customers or users of Oracle Cloud: Is Oracle Linux support included with our IaaS services and if so, which parts of Oracle Linux support are included?
The answer is very straightforward. Any customer in Oracle Cloud that creates new, creates their own or uses existing "Oracle Linux" images, in both Oracle Public Cloud and Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services, have full Oracle Linux Premier Support included at no additional cost. There is no extra hourly surcharge on top of the IaaS subscriptions. This includes access to Oracle Support, access to the My Oracle Support portal, Oracle Ksplice, use of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control to manage and monitor Oracle Linux instances and of course the packages and updates for Oracle Linux.
