When will Oracle Database 18c be available on-prem? Some of you will answer: It is available already, isn’t it? And you are right. But I don’t want to blog just a marketing message but some facts. Others may ask: When will it be generally available on-premises?
When will Oracle Database 18c be available on-prem?
As of today, March 20, 2018, Oracle Database 18c is available already in/for:
- OCI and OCI-C Database services
- Oracle Exadata and SuperCluster on premises
- Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) on premises
Actually I exchange email already with customers who deployed it on their test Exadata systems.
Anyway, for all the details and announcements, please see always the single-source-of-truth MOS Note: 742060.1 – Release Schedule of Current Database Releases.
And this MOS Note: 742060.1 tells you also the answer to a question I get quite often these days:
