Oracle Ksplice makes the management of critical updates fast, easy and safe.
Easy to set up
Go rebootless without rebooting even once to setup.
Ksplice Uptrack works on the regular Linux kernel you are already running.
Protection for kernel and user-space
Ksplice protects against vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel and critical
user-space components, including glibc and openssl, exclusively on Oracle
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.
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.
