SUSE Linux Enterprise Live Patching

LIVE PATCHING IS A CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY THAT IMPROVES BUSINESS CONTINUITY AND SAVES COSTS BY REDUCING DOWNTIMES, INCREASING SERVICE AVAILABILITY AND ENHANCING SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE.

Using Live Patching, you can apply patches to your Linux kernel without rebooting your system. Your applications keep running while you patch the Linux kernel for critical updates. With Live Patching for IBM Power and Live Patching for x86, you can maximize uptime for a wide range of systems and applications. Live Patching is independent of the application running on the Linux kernel. So you can keep running any of your business-critical applications ranging from enterprise Artificial Intelligence apps, big data analytics, databases (Oracle, SQL, etc.) to performance demanding in-memory database applications such as SAP HANA.
