"Utilitarian and Simple "

What do you like best?

It's relatively simplicity for use, practicality and utilitarianism. Its pretty easy to get things done with it, but it’s not that exciting to use at all. Very useful user controls that can make it practical and helpful for getting your work done. It's useful for the professional work setting, for sure.

What do you dislike?

It's often very slow to use, and has a very displeasing aesthetics appearance. It’s not fun to use. It’s bland and boring. It just brings down my mood. I start to feel really down and depressed some times when using it because it's just not fun at all and it just makes me feel like I'm trapped in a boring office building in the 1980's while using it! Needs improvement aesthetically. These things matter too!!! Practicality doesn't have to be everything!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it for work, but it’s not good for much else beyond just a professional setting. That's what it is best for. Beyond that, it's not aesthetically pleasing at all and I wouldn't use it if I had a choice on what to use. There's way better options out there that you would feel better while using than this, but it's very practical and great for when you're at work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is used for emails and correspondence with students. The software is very helpful, and I like its cloud-centered interface that improves the interconnectivity of it. It's very practical and useful for work.

"Oracle Linux"

What do you like best?

Oracle Linux has been around for more than 10 years, but has been gaining market share and the company says it has over 14,000 customers world-wide.Part of its popularity may be the way it plays well within an Oracle environment and its full support for Red Hat Linux, on which it is based.This interoperability theme is carried out through its support for the Open Stack tools for building cloud-computing platforms and its support for two different kernels.

What do you dislike?

The best PRO for Linux is cost and the fact Oracle is developed on Linux.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company's Oracle Linux Support program aims to provide commercial technical support, covering Oracle Linux and existing RHEL or CentOS installations but without any certification from the former (i.e. without re-installation or re-boot clarification needed As of 2016 Oracle Linux had over 15,000 customers subscribed to the support program.

"Oracle linux operating system is user friendly"

What do you like best?

Kernel with support ASM native, it's not necessary to determine versioning ASM kernel, the repositories automatically download required versions, without dealing with license acceptance.

What do you dislike?

IMHO (and professional), OEL is optimized for Oracle Products: Oracle Weblogic, Oracle DB, Oracle MySQL, Oracle Primavera, etc, but if my business don't need other Oracle products, so, I should analyze and using other distributions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most focus for development Open Source and management tools

Would be buyers may want to look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux instead. It offers the same features and greater levels of compatibility with other applications

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast deployment of multiple Databases on client IT Bussiness, misconfigurations can put your data at risk, spend time and effort, OEL is faster to automated database deployments with Oracle Real Application Clusters(RAC) and PUPPET, it has helped me save a lot of time and effort.

"Excellent Choice For Oracle DB Servers"

What do you like best?

Oracle Linux made installing Oracle database much less painful than other distributions. The binaries, additional support files and other Oracle related tweaks automatically get installed and, for the most part, just work. We tried other distros and while they did work Oracle Linux was far easier. If you are an Oracle shop thinking of going Oracle on Linux, I highly suggest it. Plus it's Linux so it is of course free.

What do you dislike?

It is stripped and some areas of the OS are locked down. We didn't find anything stopping us from customizing or installing applications. I am assuming Oracle did this to make it what they call "unbreakable".

Recommendations to others considering the product

If run Oracle I highly recommend going Linux. It is much more stable. And if you do make the jump make it Oracle Linux as all the extra what-not will be included without all the fuss.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were tired of the maintenance and licensing costs of Windows Server. Moving to Oracle Linux saved us money, time and effort. It was a true win.

"Oracle Enterprise Linux for Oracle Products"

What do you like best?

The first that I was thinking when I get of Oracle Enterprise Linux(OEL) is cheaper than others enterprise operating systems, second is that is Oracle products friendly, I used the first version of OEL and my good impression was/are:

1. Kernel with support ASM native, it's not necessary to determine versioning ASM kernel, the repositories automatically download required versions, without dealing with license acceptance.

2. Oracle DB Prerequisites is easy install with only download a packages: oracle-rdbms-server-VERSION-preinstall, it automatically downloading and installing any additional software packages, creating the user oracle and the groups oinstall, modifying kernel parameters in /etc/sysctl.conf, power off NUMA support on systems, etc, this could take hours on other operating systems.

3. Basically, OEL is tuning for optimal performance of the database MySQL and Oracle Database v11/v12.

4. And not more important, patches of Oracle Database products are released on OEL first.

What do you dislike?

IMHO (and professional), OEL is optimized for Oracle Products: Oracle Weblogic, Oracle DB, Oracle MySQL, Oracle Primavera, etc, but if my business don't need other Oracle products, so, I should analyze and using other distributions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you used an Oracle Product on you IT Business company, have more sense used OEL as your operating System, at least for running the databases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most focus for development Open Source and management tools

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast deployment of multiple Databases on client IT Bussiness, misconfigurations can put your data at risk, spend time and effort, OEL is faster to automated database deployments with Oracle Real Application Clusters(RAC) and PUPPET, it has helped me save a lot of time and effort.

"A robust distro for Oracle database users"

What do you like best?

Oracle Linux is a streamlined Linux distro without too much bloatware and is fairly fast. It has some robust features for setting up web servers, supports Oracle products, and offers kernel level security updates without requiring a reboot. Oracle offers very good technical support with a service contract. It also works with OpenStack technology. Users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux will find the OS almost identical.

What do you dislike?

Oracle Linux is not the best Linux distro for working with some third party applications. It also is fairly plain and lacks some of the "extras" found in other versions of Linux. Like other Linux systems, it can be challenging to configure, especially from the back end when compared to comparable server OS systems from Microsoft. In many ways Oracle Linux is a clone or copy of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would be buyers may want to look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux instead. It offers the same features and greater levels of compatibility with other applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a basic enterprise level OS, the Linux distro has been a great use for basic networking needs without the higher costs of a Windows Server OS. Its similarity to Red Hat Linux is also an added plus.

"Oracle OS - Redhat but redder"

What do you like best?

This runs the redhat Kernel - therefore its widely compatible with anything that runs on redhat - they do their own interpretation of the kernel, or you can just straight up use the redhat one as far as I can tell.

The integration between the OS and the Oracle Database management software is as you would expect being as though it is from the same company.

A number of our large telecoms customers operate with this as their day to day administration software platform and are really pleased with it.

What do you dislike?

If you submit a bug to Oracle, Oracle must then submit a bug report to redhat, redhat will then fix the bug, publish the fix, Oracle then takes the fix, runs it's own tests (and I'm sure edits it a bit to fit in with it's surrounding software) before fixing the the bug for the customer. If you were running and paying for the redhat service this gets simplified to: submit bug, bug fix, patch to os, so you generally find that fixing core things in Oracle OS takes a bit longer.

In my experience actually finding the image for download was a pain, having to actual sin up to Oracle's cloud in order to get the free iso. I guess the keyword is "free", but giving my company details away doesn't feel free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

try redhat first, if you find it's not for you, oracle all the way

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security & Database integration are pretty top notch

"Power of Linux with Support from Oracle"

What do you like best?

Oracle Linux is an enterprise level distro with support of Oracle behind. The power of Oracle Linux comes from popular Oracle software stack including databases, management tools and middleware. Stability, zero-down time updates, global commercial support and GNOME interface are the best features about Oracle Linux.

What do you dislike?

Oracle Linux seems to be focused for Oracle products. Limited support and restrictions for 3rd party applications is an obstacle. When I compare Redhat and Oracle Linux, Redhat seems to be more versatile to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not try to deal with critical operations alone, get an enterprise Linux distro and benefit from expert experiences. Oracle Linux is a big family with many members, trainings, conferences and certifications. Being a part of a big family saves a lot time for you with their endless support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Oracle Linux is a stable operating system designed for critical operations. We have been using Oracle Linux for last 2 years for our payment operations which requires zero downtime. Oracle Linux is also a well supported operating system, Oracle team is always ready to help when things go wrong.

"Simple and easy to use!"

What do you like best?

Good to use, pretty easy and simple to implement and understand. This product is probably one of the cheapest options that you can go for as well which makes it a good selling point and definitely one of the better options to choose from. With the simplicity of the Oracle Linux, it makes it better to integrate to users that may be new to the product or into the industry. It also is a very stable product, haven't really had any problems so far with it.

What do you dislike?

The GUI is so outdated, would make for a better one if they were to update it to look a lot more modern even though its purpose is to give the user practicality, but in doing so, it just doesn't look nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are one for productivity, this is definitely a tool that you want to be using, it offers the user a reliable and stable platform to be working from, despite the GUI looking outdated, then this is definitely a product that I would recommend you to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Very stable, able to use without a lot of problems, very affordable for the user, meaning that you don't have to go to a lot of expense to use a great system.

"My experience with Oracle Linux"

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed the simplicity. When you use other kind of OS like Windows or Mac, you are most likely full of bloatware. Oracle Linux provides you just what you need, and the tools to make your computer a great workspace.

What do you dislike?

You're always gonna feel like this OS was built for Oracle products, I dislike the GUI(feels antiquated).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a Linux operating system only for entertainment or for personal use, then go for another Operating System.

But, if you're looking for an OS focused on productivity, on an IT-Business company, then this is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Web and Software Developer, a Linux system is a must. So far Oracle Linux has been performing great.

I need to have full control of my machine when debugging Software, and Oracle Linux does that right. I feel secure due to the stability of this Operative System.

"Perfect for task automatization"

What do you like best?

I loved how simple is it. if you compare it to other Linux Distros(more popular such as Ubuntu, linux Mint, etc), it is much lightweight.

It is easy to use, and really makes it simple to develop on Oracle Products.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how the GUI seems to be a lot OLD. I understand the point of the OS, it is to make you productive, yet I believe a beautiful Graphic User Interface wouldn't come bad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not download it if it's not for an Oracle reason. I only used it for the certifications and to make some software using Oracle's APIs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Software Engineer, I was preparing for the Oracle certifications, and they recommended me to get this Linux Distro. I'm not aware of many technical things about this OS, but it came very handy during the practice process.

"Drop-in Replacement for RedHat"

What do you like best?

It is binary compatible with RedHat and existing RedHat installs can be converted to Oracle Linux with only updating 2-3 RPMs and can be done live without a reboot. In addition, Oracle Linux support comes free with our Oracle/Sun X86 hardware. We've saved a considerable amount of money on support by switching.

What do you dislike?

Support requires using Oracle's Support Portal (MOS), which is not very intuitive and is showing it's age. Often times a Google search yields much better and faster results than engaging Oracle Support or using MOS.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are using or plan to use Oracle X86 hardware, Oracle Linux will eliminate your need for a separate software support contract. RPMS designed for RedHat will work on Oracle Linux as there is only a 2-3 rpm difference between them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using and paying for RedHat support for many years and rarely open a case with them. This resulted in wasted money. We also utilize Oracle X86 hardware which comes with Oracle Linux support included. We've been able to completely eliminate our RedHat support costs.

"Oracle Linux best Linux for Oracle databases"

What do you like best?

Oracle Enterprise Linux comes with additional optimizations to maximize Oracle performance and stability. Plus the distro already inlcudes all the best RPM's one would have to manually find and install on other Linux distro's. Plus Oracle Linux comes with complete ASM support already built in. Again less work to get things setup and working.

What do you dislike?

Some generic utility RPM's (e.g. bleachbit) do not install properly all the time. Sometimes it takes a little work or waiting for the RPM to get updated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want Oracle to run optimally on your hardware then Oracle Enterprise Linux is your best choice. The cost is also very attractive. Plus Oracle Linux stays in sync with any and all Oracle requirements. For example ASM support is native and reliable/stable. Other distros put the onus of extra work on you to get things working.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run all our Oracle databases on Oracle Entreprise Linux. It has allowed us to standardize on a stable and highly performant platform that is easy to adminster for Oracle databases.

I'm running Oracle Linux for a while now and It is very stable and reliable and you can rely on because the company makes it for Oracle. It is smooth to work with and very easy.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to say

"Oracle's Attempt To Force Purchases"

What do you like best?

It is fully optimized to run Oracle's RDBMS platform, and nothing else.

What do you dislike?

Oracle Linux was a way for Oracle to try to force you into making an additional purchase. When originally launched they toyed with the idea of saying they only supported Oracle's RDBMS platform running on Oracle Linux, but were forced to change that perspective with the outcry of all Oracle users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look elsewhere, most *nix OS' will run Oracle perfectly.
