Oracle on Linux

Traditionally Oracle databases for a certain scale have been installed on servers with UNIX OS, and on windows server systems. In recognition of Linux as an operating system reliable enough for use in large servers, large corporations are beginning to consider using this system for the flexibility and access to video it offers, and no licensing costs. 

Thus, an option that will win over fans every time is the installation of Oracle databases on Linux. 

In the case study described by Oracle in the attached link shows an interesting example of the Gas Natural Group, which took the decision to migrate the Oracle database that houses the corporate Data Warehouse powerful machines from a UNIX server platform in more modest clustered on a Linux platform. Specifically, the database was migrated to Oracle 9i with Real Application Cluster on RedHat Linux. 

This solution achieved a reduction in costs, while improving both performance and scalability of the system.
