Oracle Linux is completely open source and fully compatible—both source and binary—with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a fact that is validated by the Edison Group and in certification with the Linux Standard Base (LSB). The Edison Group, an independent third party, includes laboratory test results in their published white paper that demonstrates this compatibility, and compliance with the LSB standard assures users that the cost of moving applications from Red Hat to the Oracle Linux distribution is minimal.
Scores of leading technology partners—independent software vendors, hardware vendors, and system integrators—certify thei products with Oracle Linux and their solutions work out-of-the-box with Oracle Linux because it's fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
