Flexible virtual machines can run RHEL, and customers can migrate existing workloads to OCI. Customers can also contact both Red Hat and Oracle support to help resolve potential issues, with an expanded joint support agreement.

RHEL is initially supported on virtual machine shapes using AMD, Intel and Arm processors.
