With rebootless updates, you can:
Linux distributions require a reboot about once a month to stay up to date with important kernel security updates. Oracle Ksplice Uptrack allows you to apply the same updates published by your Linux vendor, without rebooting.
Not all kernel patches are created equal. Ksplice patches run-time security vulnerabilities and stability bugs. Whether it's the latest CVE targeting the network stack or a kernel panic caused by a poorly written driver, Ksplice will quickly provide protection to your system, without rebooting.
(Legacy customers can see the complete list of supported kernels on the Legacy Customers page.)
Oracle Linux Premier Support customers already have access to Ksplice. Visit Unbreakable Linux Network for installation instructions and to get an access key, and obtain the benefits of getting security updates without rebooting.
If you use Oracle Linux or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can try Oracle Ksplice free for 30 days. During the trial, you will receive all of the protections of Oracle Ksplice.
Servers aren't the only systems needing protection. Oracle has made Oracle Ksplice available for free to members of the Linux community running desktop installations of Ubuntu and Fedora. Find out first hand the benefits of being protected by Oracle Ksplice.
