Linux might be free to download and use but Oracle Linux comes with some great benefits. Only Oracle gives Linux users the most comprehensive offerings: from applications, management tools, databases, middleware, operating system and even hardware. You get to use all these and have only one centralized source for support.
Oracle Linux can give you the latest innovations in the OS. Oracle Linux is noteworthy because it consistently delivers better performance, scalability and reliability. It is also optimized to run for business purposes.
If you are looking to validate your skills and prove to would-be employers that you have the talent, knowledge and expertise to install, deploy, maintain, administer and troubleshoot systems running on Oracle Linux, then there are two certification paths that you could take with Oracle Linux:
- Associate Certification
- Professional Certification
To get associate certification in Oracle Linux, you would need to pass the 1Z0-100, or Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administration, exam. You are now an Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administrator and could go on to become an Oracle Certified Professional or an Oracle Linux 6 System Administrator.
The Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administration Exam has around 150 to 220 multiple-choice questions that you would need to answer in 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
Exam topics include:
- the basics of Linux, including using shell variables, creating and maintaining shell scripts, managing processes, administering /etc/sudoers, performing file compression and archiving, among other topics
- Linux concepts, where you would be asked to describe the history of the operating system, the kernel development model, different Linux distributions, Oracle Linux solutions, compatibility with other Linux distributions and the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel
- installing Oracle Linux
- configuring the Linux Boot Process and other system configuration topics
- installation and maintenance of Oracle Linux packages
- use and management of Ksplice

To become an Oracle Certified Professional or Oracle Linux 6 System Administrator, you would need to be an Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle Linux 5 and 6 System Administrator or an Oracle Linux Administrator Certified Associate.
Once you have these prior certifications, you would need to pass the 1Z0-105 – Oracle Linux 6 Advanced System Administration exam. The 1Z0-105 exam is also a multiple choice test with 150 to 220 questions that you would have to finish in 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
