MIRACLE LINUX is a Japanese Linux distribution provided by Cybertrust Corporation.
Miracle Linux (now Cybertrust), established by Oracle Japan and NEC in June 2000, began development of Oracle Database for business and enterprise use with the aim of ensuring stable operation.
It has been based on RHEL since Version 2.0 released in May 2001, and has been a full RHEL clone since Version 6.0 released in January 2012, with the latest version being 8.4 as of December 2021.
MIRACLE LINUX, the famous domestic RHEL clone, was initially a commercial OS with a paid license, but following the termination of CnetOS8, it was announced that it would be offered free of charge starting with the latest 8.4.
The current distribution is Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 9 compatible with the latest version 9.0 released on November 1, 2022.
Like RHEL9, MIRACLE LINUX 9 is based on Linux kernel 5.14. In addition to version upgrades to major packages such as OpenSSL, MIRACLE LINUX 9 offers mainly enhanced security-related features such as improved SELinux performance and secure boot support.
Package updates and security patches will be provided free of charge until November 2032.
