Oracle Linux 9

Oracle Linux is the most comprehensive Linux environment available. It provides virtualization, management, automation, app development, and cloud native computing tools. It modernizes and optimizes hybrid and multicloud infrastructures, securely. Applications run on-premises, in Oracle Cloud, and in other clouds. Specially designed for Hybrid Cloud, Linux includes the latest open standards virtualization and cloud native tools.  

Oracle Linux is the only autonomous operating system (OS). It minimizes OS management task complexity and overhead. It automates Linux patching, so no reboot is required for kernel, hypervisor, and critical user-space libraries.  An integrated suite of cloud native tools streamlines infrastructure deployments and improves workload performance. The newest features in Oracle Linux 9 improve security infrastructure, system management, and developer tools.

Oracle Linux 9 is popular among IT and enterprise users because you get the most of your enterprise OS. Oracle Linux 9 supports virtualization and containers all in one image. Ideal for DevSecOps to minimize Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM). Installation requires minimal attention and scalability extends from nano instances to larger fleets. Oracle Linux 9 is flexible for any of your needs. 

Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) and Red Hat Compatible Kernel are updated on the installation image. Kernel Live Patching (KLP) applies critical security patches while the kernel runs; no reboot is required. A constantly updated enterprise is maintained and IRQs do not interrupt business activities.  

Oracle Linux 9 is 100% application binary compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Versatile between the native pre-configured RPM repository, and user space compatibility with RHEL. A kernel more innovative than other commercial Linux kernels, it runs at higher performance than possible on image-import. 

Oracle Linux 9 support options flexibly match your enterprise needs. Offerings include Embedded Linux, Linux in the cloud, and on-premises. Embedded Linux increases cost efficiency with feature-rich Linux distros. Linux in the cloud offers Oracle Linux Premier Support, free of charge. Linux on-premises is the best Linux OS for comprehensive, open distributions.  

Oracle Linux 9 adds software management features: an upgraded RPM, a new plugin with integrity checks for installed packages, Zstandard (zstd) for file compression, and DNF to automatically detect weak package dependencies. It comes preinstalled with the latest GCC, glibc, binutils, Grafana, LLVM, and more toolsets and performance monitor programs. It includes Python 3.9, Node.js, Ruby, Java development kits (JDK), and the newest programming language versions and tools. The XFS file system now supports the Extensible File Allocation Table (exFAT) and ext4. 

Upgraded security includes bugfixes for Oracle Linux in Microsoft Azure, and OpenSSL 3.0 implementation enables more easily run algorithms to meet Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). OpenSSH is updated to version 8.7p1 for the latest security and debugging features. Improvements to SELinux operating performance include disk space usage efficiency and reduced memory overhead. The WireGuard Virtual Private Network (VPN) is available on Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) R7. 

Ntegral certified images are always up-to-date, secure, and built to work right out of the box. 

Ntegral packages applications following industry standards, and continuously monitors all components and libraries for vulnerabilities and application updates. When any security threat or update is identified, Ntegral automatically repackages the applications and pushes the latest versions to the cloud marketplaces.
