Optimizing Linux for Oracle Databases

Companies are migrating away from large IBM, HP, or Sun hardware to commodity hardware running Linux. With the readily available 18-core Intel chips at affordable prices, companies can run massive Linux compute nodes at a fraction of the cost of enterprise UNIX servers on IBM, HP, and Sun. Linux is proven to have rock-solid OSs that provide extreme reliability similar to its counterpart UNIX OSs such as IBM AIX, HP/UX, and Sun Solaris.
