Re: Adoption of kernel UEK or UEK2

We are using it on our Oracle products that are on Linux (OBI at the moment, but considering more). We haven't had any issues with it. It's stable and runs well within our infrastructure. We actually have a mix of Linux and x86 *NIX here (Ubuntu, RedHat, and OEL/UEK), also FreeBSD and Solaris x86_64. Overall I haven't seen any benefit to RedHat over OEL/UEK for our purposes. The nice thing with the OEL setup is that we have one place to go when issues arise. The OS and the apps on these systems are Oracle so they can't dodge the issues by saying its an app issue or an OS issue. They fully own any issues that arise. --Rodd
