What is Oracle Linux?
Oracle Linux is an enterprise-class Linux distribution supported by Oracle and built from source packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Some of the special features of Oracle Linux include a custom-build and rigorously-tested Linux kernel called "Oracle Unbreakable Kernel", tight integration with Oracle's hardware and software products including most database applications, and "zero downtime patching" which is feature that enables administrators to update the kernel without a reboot.

Oracle Linux 6.9 New Features and Improvements
Oracle Linux 6 Update 9 includes multiple updated kernels, including two new "Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel" packages and a "Red Hat Compatible Kernel" package. The new update to the 6.x series also includes a number of significant bug fixes. Oracle Linux 6 Update 9 fixes a regression introduced in glibc in the upstream release that could cause Oracle Database to fail to start in certain circumstances. This regression was found and fixed during Oracle's extensive testing of Oracle Linux with Oracle products. Customers using other Linux distributions with Oracle Database are encouraged to talk to their Linux provider about whether they also have a patch available. Notable features in this release include: TLS 1.2 support for all system components; the cpuid utility is now available; improved support when running as a Hyper-V guest; enhanced SSSD support for Active Directory.
Oracle Linux 6.x Minimum System Requirements
You can install Oracle Linux 6 on systems with a 32 or 64-bit x86 architecture (x86 or x86_64), a minimum of 1 GB of memory, a minimum of 1 GB of disk space, and an unlimited number of CPU cores. The maximum supported memory size is 64 GB for x86 and 4 TB for x86_64.
