Available as open source, Oracle Linux is fully compatible both source and binary with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Oracle Linux is certified for compliance with the Linux Standard Base (LSB) standard, which reduces the differences between individual Linux distributions and greatly reduces the costs involved with porting applications to different distributions, as well as lowers the cost and effort involved in after market support of those applications.
Oracle Linux Test (OLT) Kit:
Oracle Linux Tests are designed to verify Linux kernel functionality and stability essential for the Oracle Database. The Oracle Linux Test (OLT) kit, which is distributed as a set of rpms, provides an automated mechanism to define, execute and analyze tests. The OLT Kit is a test framework designed to verify Linux kernel functionality and stability essential for the Oracle Database both in single node and in RAC configurations. OLT includes stress and destructive tests for network and storage failures.
