Yesterday at OOW London, my dear colleague from Oracle Italy, Roberto Zampese told me that our EVP Juan Loiza has announced the availability of Oracle 20c within days. And this morning, Daniel told me that it you can provision 20c instances in our OCI Cloud already. In addition, the documentation is available already, too.
Oracle Database 20c – Documentation and Cloud availability
First of all, find the Oracle Database 20c documentation here:
And as usual, the first thing I usually do, is browsing through the New Features Guide.
There are a lot of interesting new things in Oracle Database 20c, but the most important one is the 20c CDB-Only-Architecture change.
And of course, you can provision your first 20c instance in the Oracle OCI Cloud, too! See this quick tutorial about how to provision an instance within a few minutes.
It’s the preview version, 20.2.0.

The default read-only Oracle Home in 20c also seems to be a big change.
I will blog a bit more about the new features when it is available on-prem – but you are right, this may be another bigger change!
