The Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) is a Linux kernel built by Oracle and supported via Oracle Linux support. Its focus is performance, stability, and minimal backports by tracking the mainline source code as closely as is practical. UEK is well–tested and used to run Oracle’s Engineered Systems, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, and large enterprise deployments for Oracle customers.
We’re posting the source on GitHub for our weekly development builds. Building from this repository requires additional dependencies which are indicated on the GitHub README file. The source for production builds will continue to be available via git here.
