Oracle Database 18.3.0 On-Prem for Linux

I was just about to go to bed when I saw this post by Mike Dietrich. Yay!

I’ve had access to 18c on the Oracle Cloud for some time, so I’ve already been able to write a bunch of stuff about it (see here), but it always feels geekier when it’s running on your own kit. It also makes demos a little less dangerous if you can fall back to your own machine. 🙂

Of course I’m starting the downloads now, so maybe I’ll get to have a play tomorrow? 🙂 If you want it you can grab it from here.

Happy upgrading…

Cheers

Oracle Database 12cR2 (12.2) On-Prem : It’s finally here!

Oracle 12cR2 (12.2) has been around for a while on the cloud, but for many people it doesn’t really exist until they’ve downloaded it and run it on an “on-prem” server or a VM on their PC.

If you are of that mind, you will be pleased to know the on-prem release has arrived! You can download it from eDelivery or OTN.

I’ve been writing about it for a while (here), but it’s nice to have the on-prem release and the knowledge that someone might actually read the stuff I’m writing now (or in about 5 years when people start to use it). 🙂

There will of course be the usual rash of installation articles coming from me for a while, before I get back to more interesting things…

Happy downloading…

Cheers

Update: My first installs here.
