What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us with Oracle's Linux product is the online kernel patching.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us the ability to cover kernel bugs by using Oracle Ksplice online patching. The best part is that we can do this whole process without any unnecessary downtime.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, from my experience the documentation and resources are not complete and I sometimes have to refer to Red Hat for Linux documentation.

Also, because we use HP servers, the drivers for Oracle Linux are not complete yet.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Oracle Linux for about four years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I've had no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I've had no issues with the stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling it for my needs.

How is customer service and technical support?

I'd say that technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

For the initial setup, you need some expertise to configure a good and stable system.

What about the implementation team?

I perform all Oracle Linux implementations myself. The most important point that I've found is to plan, plan, plan, and then deploy.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price is good.
