If your enterprise is already using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you’ve probably already heard of Oracle Linux because Oracle’s is the fastest-growing Linux distribution on the market. Oracle Linux (OL) combines the strength and stability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) with the added security and flexibility that’s only available from Oracle’s world-class development team to provide a robust Linux option that costs less than RHEL – yet provides more.
However, you probably expected us to say that, since we’re one of the leading Oracle Cloud experts in the U.S. What you need is a true comparison between the two products, so you can make the best decision for your enterprise.
That’s why we here at Centroid decided to compare Oracle Linux with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so we could provide you with a no-holds-barred, head-to-head competition between the two products.
Of course, the reason so many enterprises choose RHEL is because of its well-recognized stability and flexibility, and because it’s become a relatively easy to use industry standard that simplifies training.
To find the facts and make our head-to-head comparison, we looked deeply into these factors and we also analyzed the two products’ benefits when it came to overall costs, support options, security, and cloud readiness.
Here’s what we found.
Oracle Linux runs the Oracle Cloud, which means OL has been battle-tested for years, and now completes more than 57 billion transactions per day for 29 million active users in 195 countries worldwide. Plus, since Oracle Linux runs the internal IT at Oracle, the distribution keeps getting better each day because the Oracle development team continually optimizes it to run faster and more efficiently in the cloud.
When we compared Oracle Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux head to head, we weren’t that surprised when we determined that Oracle Linux is a more flexible product at a better long-term price point. After all, here at Centroid, we’ve been implementing and supporting Oracle solutions for more than 20 years and we’ve consistently found that Oracle offers well-engineered, sophisticated options for enterprises that are looking for robust technical tools that work better than the competition.
In our professional opinion, we strongly believe that Oracle Linux is more flexible, more secure, and a better fit for enterprises that are already running or plan to switch to Oracle solutions.
And we can prove it.
