Oracle Linux from Acardia for your enterprise computing needs


Oracle Linux is fully compatible—both source and binary—with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. An independent, third-party white paper from the Edison Group, Oracle Linux: True Enterprise-Quality Linux Support includes laboratory test results which further demonstrate this true compatibility. Oracle Linux is certified for compliance with the Linux Standard Base (LSB) standard, which reduces the differences between individual Linux distributions and greatly reduces the costs involved with porting applications to different distributions, as well as lowers the cost and effort involved in after-market support of those applications. It is free to download, use and distribute in the form of ISO images as well as individual RPM packages:

  • The Red Hat Compatible Kernel, for those who prefer strict Red Hat compatibility, or
  • The new Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, for those who want to leverage the latest features in Linux and boost performance and scalability.
