Free Community Protection for Ubuntu Desktop and Fedora
Servers aren't the only systems needing protection. Oracle has made Oracle Ksplice available for free to members of the Linux community running desktop installations of Ubuntu and Fedora. Find out first hand the benefits of being protected by Oracle Ksplice:
Easy to set up
Go rebootless without rebooting even once to setup. Ksplice Uptrack works on the regular Linux kernel you are already running.
Works in your environment
Ksplice Uptrack works perfectly in virtualized environments or on bare metal. It also works with your userspace applications and third-party kernel modules. Ksplice Uptrack leaves your third-party modules alone as it updates the rest of your kernel.
Instantly reverse any update to the Linux kernel–rebootlessly as always. Kernel change management has never been easier!
No performance impact
Update running systems without any negative impact on performance. Also, Ksplice Uptrack does not require a persistently running process.
Apply Ksplice updates to systems not connected to the Internet by running your own updates mirror.
Ksplice Uptrack supports using a standard HTTP proxy to pass through your firewall.
Web management tool
Conveniently check whether all of your systems are up to date, in one place, in your web browser.
Ksplice Uptrack uses security best practices for preparing our software packages and rebootless updates. All our software packages and rebootless updates are cryptographically signed.
We'll send you an email announcement whenever new updates are available for one of your systems.
API and monitoring
Programmatically monitor and control your machines through the Uptrack API. Our client library comes with Python bindings and example scripts, including a Nagios plugin.
Set access policies for individual or groups of machines.
