Autonomous Linux, the world's first autonomous operating system has been unveiled by Oracle

Autonomous Linux from oracleOracle ad yesterday Autonomous Linux. As the Californian company affirms, it is the world's first autonomous operating system and, considering that they were already working with the penguin and the possibilities it can offer us, it is not surprising that it is based on Linux. This self-contained operating system provisions, adjusts, and patches itself while it is running, all without user or administrator interaction.

Autonomous Linux is more intended for use on the servers that manage the clouds. This standalone operating system is based on Oracle Linux, a distribution used to manage Oracle Cloud and Oracle Engineered Systems. Any application available from Red Hat will work directly and unmodified on Autonomous Linux, or so Oracle co-founder and CTO Larry Ellison promised, who also promised "literally instant migration."

Oracle Autonomous Linux is designed for extreme performance, reliability, and security

Ellison also says that his new proposal is designed for extreme performance, reliability and safety, all this with the autonomy that this type of task provides autonomously. Best of all, the operating system is free to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers, which means "If you're paying IBM, you can stop."

Oracle also presented Oracle OS Management Service, a highly available component of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to monitor and control systems, whether they run the new standalone Linux, any other Linux or Windows. Combined with resource governance policies, the service enables users to automate capabilities to perform common administration tasks for Linux systems.

Both Oracle Autonomous Linux and Oracle OS Management Service leverage the advanced machine learning. The new operating system offers daily automatic security updates for the Linux kernel and key user-space libraries, with no downtime. Known Exploit Detection provides automatic alerts if someone tries to exploit a vulnerability that has been patched by Oracle.

Autonomous Linux it is not intended for domestic use, but a server is happy to read this type of news: although in many cases it is in the IoT or in the cloud, Linux continues to advance.

    Nothing is understood, just subjective and ambiguous phrases, what does it mean for an operating system to adjust or "provision" itself? What does it mean for something to be "highly available"? Pure antics.

    "Linux keeps advancing", ha ha ha, I've been hearing the same thing for 30 years.

      Hello John. They are the "antics" that says the official source (Oracle).

      A greeting.

    Really, there are few data ... At least the sources could be cited.

      Hello Oscar. It is cited in the second word (Oracle the source, link in "announced").

      A greeting.

    Pablinux, not even yours !!!
    World's First Autonomous System? "The windows" has only been updated for a long time, more or less since w2k….
    Today's marketing, the same one used by Oracle or apple, is aimed at the blind for their products.
