The only autonomous OS, Oracle Linux includes the latest open-standards–based virtualization and cloud native tools.
Oracle Linux is, as the name suggests, a Linux distribution created by Oracle. It’s based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or RHEL, and aims for full compatibility with that distro. Oracle even has scripts that let you convert from RHEL or CentOS to Oracle Linux.
Oracle Linux is an enterprise-grade Linux distro that’s available completely free of charge and backed by one of the largest software companies in the world. For all of the reasons mentioned above, it’s attracted high-profile corporate clients such as United Airlines and the Progressive insurance company. Oracle also uses it internally for its own cloud deployments.
