Oracle Linux
Minimum Operating System Requirements
Welcome to HPE's interactive Oracle minimum operating system requirements webpage for ProLiant Servers.

HPE recommends that our customers update to the latest service packs and security releases from Oracle.

Related Resources
All HPE drivers for Oracle Linux are Open Source and put into the upstream kernel. Drivers that are not Open Source are not included in Oracle Linux or supported by HPE or Oracle.
NOTE: Oracle includes the KVM environment in UEK5 and later. KVM is certified as part of UEK certifications. See https://blogs.oracle.com/virtualization/announcing-oracle-linux-virtualization-manager for more information.
