Oracle Cloud

One of the key features of Rocky Linux is its support for the cloud. The operating system has been designed to work seamlessly with a variety of cloud providers, including Oracle Cloud, an enterprise cloud that delivers massive, consistent performance and next generation security across a comprehensive portfolio of services including SaaS, application development, application hosting, and business analytics. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure users now have the option for deploying Rocky Linux as the host operating system for third-party applications.

Using Oracle Cloud and Rocky Linux together also provides businesses with the flexibility to run their applications on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment. This means that businesses can choose the deployment option that best meets their needs, whether that is running their applications on-premises for maximum control and security, or running them in the cloud for maximum scalability and cost-efficiency.
