Oracle Linux customers have a few options to manage and provision their servers. We provide a license to use Oracle Enterprise Manager's Linux OS management, monitoring and provisioning features without additional cost for every server that has an Oracle Linux support subscription.

The nice thing with Oracle Enterprise Manager is that you end up with a single management product that can manage all aspects of your software stack.

We just released Oracle Linux 5.10 channels on both http://public-yum.oracle.com and on the Unbreakable Linux Network. ISO's are going to be updated on edelivery in a few days. The channels are available immediately.
As many of you know, we are now using a CDN to distribute the RPMS for public-yum globally so you should have good bandwidth everywhere to freely access the RPMs.
One of the great keynotes at Oracle OpenWorld last week, was from Microsoft. You can watch the replay here. I think Brad did an awesome job, very engaging and a very positive partner message. There was a lot of Oracle Linux talk in the Microsoft session, just awesome.
We have worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that we can deploy Oracle Linux inside their Azure platform (and also just in general on Hyper-v).
Superstar Saar just released a new set of Oracle VM templates.
