Pros: It's Red Hat with an Oracle Flare
Cons: Network Interfaces constantly disconnect. Unstable on Hyper-V.

One of the biggest problems we've had in our production environment has been with the Network Interfaces. At random times, and for no apparent reason, the network interfaces will just stop and enter the disabled state. One of the faults we currently have is being able to monitor this, so we hear about it from our Helpdesk. The issue seems to only exist when using the latest UEK for Oracle Linux 6.7. When we use the Red Hat Compatible Kernel, the issue does not exist. Oracle help support has not been helpful on the situation and state that it is because the system is virtualized, though our physical systems have the same problem.

After installing Oracle Linux 6.7 on Hyper-V on 2012R2, the Oracle Linux will not start. We do not have this issue with Oracle Linux 6.6 or Oracle Linux 7.0 on the same Hyper-V cluster.
