Highly secure. Highly reliable.

Oracle Autonomous Linux, along with the new Oracle OS Management Service, is the first and only autonomous operating environment that helps greatly reduce complexity and human error to deliver increased cost savings, security, and availability for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers, all while providing full compatibility with IBM Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

What is Oracle Autonomous Linux?

Oracle Autonomous Linux executes automatic patch updates and tuning—without human interaction—improving IT staff productivity, security, and downtime. Combined with native Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services such as Oracle OS Management Service, it offers even more automation such as autoscaling, lifecycle management across pools, and monitoring. It is available with Oracle Linux Premier Support at no cost to Oracle Cloud customers. Oracle Autonomous Linux is based on Oracle Linux, which is binary-compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, allowing IBM Red Hat customers to immediately start using the service with current applications on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Benefits of Oracle Autonomous Linux on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Keeping operating systems patched and secure is one of the biggest operational challenges that IT organizations can face. With Oracle Autonomous Linux in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you can minimize availability and security risks from missed or incorrectly applied patches. With Oracle Ksplice enabled by default, you can reduce unnecessary downtime when applying kernel patches to your systems. When deployed with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services such as Oracle OS Management Service, the automation and TCO benefits get even better with automatic provisioning, scaling, and tuning. Combined with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s other cost advantages, all of this means that most Oracle Linux workload customers can expect to have a 30 to 50 percent TCO savings over five years versus both on premise and other cloud vendors.
