Oracle Linux (formerly known as Oracle Enterprise Linux) provides the latest innovations, tools, and features that enable you to innovate, collaborate, and create solutions across traditional, cloud-based, and virtual environments. Providing advanced scalability and reliability for enterprise applications and systems, Oracle Linux delivers extreme performance and is used in all x86-based Oracle Engineered Systems. Oracle Linux is free to use, free to distribute, free to update, and easy to download. It is the only Linux distribution with production support for zero-downtime kernel updates with Oracle Ksplice, allowing customers the ability to apply patches for security and other updates without a reboot, as well as providing diagnostic features for debugging kernel issues on production systems. (Source = Oracle)

Oracle Linux Advantage
Oracle is the only vendor in the industry that offers a complete Linux-based solution stack—applications, middleware, database, management tools, operating system, and hardware—along with a single point of support. Oracle invests significantly in testing Oracle Linux and enabling enterprises to deploy with confidence. And Oracle Linux Support provides industry-leading global support for the Linux operating system at dramatically lower cost. (Source = Oracle)

Operating System
Oracle Linux is an open-source operating system available under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2). Suitable for general purpose or Oracle workloads, it benefits from rigorous testing of more than 128,000 hours per day with real-world workloads and includes unique innovations such as Ksplice for zero-downtime kernel patching, DTrace for real-time diagnostics, the powerful Btrfs file system, and more. (Source = Oracle)

I have been a System Administrator for the last 10+ years at some of the major IT companies on the market.

With a Degree in Computer Science, and another one on Systems Engineering I am continuously studying to extend my knowledge.

In the past few years some of the projects that I was responsible for involved development, implementation and distribution of complex and worldwide used high end Unix Operating Systems.

Design and implementation of NAS LAN WAN DB and OS environments.

I have considerable experience managing and troubleshooting all aspects of UNIX operations and applications.

Currently introducing myself on WEB management and design.
