Oracle has furthered its support for Linux users with a new range of free management tools.
The Oracle Management Pack for Linux is designed for Oracle Unbreakable Linux users, the Linux support initiative the firm launched at the end of last year.
Based on Oracle's management solution - Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g - the Oracle Management Pack for Linux provides Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme users with Linux server lifecycle management, helping to reduce the complexity and cost of managing their Linux OS environments, said Oracle.
"Today's announcement reinforces our commitment to deliver better Linux support and manageability at lower prices," said Wim Coekaerts, Oracle vice president of Linux engineering. "The Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme now features the industry's most comprehensive Linux management solution, at no additional cost to users.”
Oracle Unbreakable Linux is a support programme that is designed to be cheaper than the support offered by established Linux players like Red Hat.
When Oracle launched the programme Red Hat claimed it wasn’t as comprehensive as the support programme it already offered to its customers.
The Oracle Management Pack for Linux now offers Oracle Unbreakable Linux users extra integrated and centralised tools for provisioning, patching, monitoring, and administering Linux servers.
The Oracle Management Pack for Linux for Oracle Unbreakable Linux is now available and can be downloaded from the Oracle Technology Network at:
The pack is included with the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support programme (Basic and Premier service levels) at no additional charge.
