Oracle 18c is Available for Download Now and It's not the same

Oracle 18c Database Download and Install Guide


Yes, you've heard it right. Oracle Database Release 18c is officially available for download and on-premise installation.

Please follow the below mentioned link to download it.

Oracle Database 18c download

Also find below the reference to Oracle 18c Administration Documentation here

Also just for a quick reference, there are some changes in the way this new release will get installed. Though the complete software bundle is available only for Linux at this moment but soon the Windows Version will also be there. Apart from the complete 18c database software, below mentioned software are also available for download,

  • Oracle Database 18c Grid Infrastructure (18.3) for Linux x86-64
  • Oracle Database 18c Global Service Manager (GSM/GDS) (18.3) for Linux x86-64
  • Oracle Database Gateways 18c (18.3) for Linux x86-64
  • Oracle Database 18c Examples (18.3) for Linux x86-64
  • Oracle Database 18c Client (18.3) for Linux x86-64
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware Web Tier Utilities for Linux x86-64 
What's different?

I downloaded the zip and extracted it. The setup is not the same as it was before. This time, Oracle is providing the complete Oracle Home Binaries as a software bundle. Don't worry, you'll still have the runInstaller file to get started with and the rest of the Installation process remains same. But this was the major difference which I noticed for now.

Will update the Installation Guide for Oracle Database 18c on Oracle Linux soon in my upcoming posts. Till then stay tuned !!

I hope this helps :)
