Did you know that almost all of the fastest supercomputers run on Linux? In fact, the world’s top supercomputers are all on Linux.
Oracle essentially works in the same way that Linux does. Only that it provides a world of benefits that you do not get from other providers. For example, when you use Oracle, you only need to get support from one company, and you only pay for the support that you use. Plus, you gain some technical advantages like the fact that Red Hat usually uses the same Linux kernel for a very long time, usually lasting for five years. New features and improvements are back-ported to older versions. What this means is that you get more out of your investments with Oracle.
Oracle Linux is also very speedy at a very low cost. A two-processor Intel computer running on Oracle Linux can fully execute more than a million orders in a single minute, and it will cost you only 58 cents.
Furthermore, you can take advantage of the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK), which is built on a new version of the Linux kernel and compatible with earlier versions as well as with RHEL. If you are running systems that have more cores, then the UEK is for you as it provides 20% more speed on larger servers, and is 70% faster than current RHCK. The UEK also combines what is good with Linux and Oracle, making it 75% faster than a comparable Red Hat kernel.

Oracle Can Help Lower Your Costs
Another compelling reason to switch to Oracle is that it helps keep your costs down. Not only is Oracle Linux free to use and has an open license, but support is also cheaper than Red Hat’s support. If you have virtual machines, you do not have to worry about paying for anything because Oracle charges you only for physical servers.
