Oracle Linux is engineered for open cloud infrastructure. It delivers leading performance, scalability and reliability for enterprise SaaS and PaaS workloads as well as traditional enterprise applications.
Oracle Linux 7 Update 3 for ARM is the first public release of Oracle Linux on the ARM platform. The release is built from the same source packages as the corresponding Oracle Linux distribution for the x86 architecture, plus any required patches and modifications that are required to run on the ARM platform.
Although Oracle Linux 7 Update 3 for ARM is based on Oracle Linux 7 Update 3 for the x86 platform, differences between the releases for the two platforms exist in terms of packaging and kernel versions. Packages built for 64-bit ARM architecture use the aarch64 architecture code. Some packages that are available for the x86 platform may not be available for this release. Patches may have been applied to packages to successfully build for this platform, and some packages may have been bumped to a newer version.
