Novedades Oracle Database Cloud Service - Diciembre 2018

December 2018

Updated notices of future deprecations and removals
Soon, Oracle Database Cloud Service (Database Classic on the My Services Dashboard), will drop the option to create database deployments on OCI regions. Oracle recommends creating new database deployments for OCI using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Database service (Database on the My Services Dashboard). This service offers database deployments on Bare Metal, VM, and Exadata.
Cloud support for Oracle Database 12c Release 2 ends July 2020. Cloud support for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 ends December 2020. These actions apply to all cloud services: DBCS, ExaCS, ExaCC, and OCI Database.
If you are using, or are planning to use, one of the release versions listed above, Oracle recommends that you plan an upgrade to a supported RDBMS release (for example, Oracle Database 18c or Oracle Database 12c Release 1) before services using Oracle Database 12c Release 2 or Oracle Database 11g Release 2 enter the unsupported state.
Cloud tooling update available for deployments hosting Oracle RAC databases
The 18.3.1 update to cloud tooling is available to apply to existing Database Cloud Servicedatabase deployments that host Oracle RAC databases.
To apply this update, use the tag 18331 when following the instructions Updating the Cloud Tooling by Using the raccli Utility in Administering Oracle Database Cloud Service.
October 2018 PSU, BP and RU patches available to apply to existing deployments
The October 2018 Patch Set Update (PSU), Bundle Patch (BP) and Release Update (RU) are now available to patch existing Database Cloud Service database deployments, provided that you use a command-line utility to apply the patch. Which of these patches you apply depends on the Oracle Database version of your deployment.
Before you apply the appropriate patch, make sure your deployment has the latest version of cloud tooling, as described in Updating the Cloud Tooling on Database Cloud Service in Administering Oracle Database Cloud Service.
