Oracle Database Patchset is ready to download

Oracle RDBMS PatchSet version is available to download since 23-SEP-2011! some time earlier than OOW2011

But(as of 28-SEP-2011) it’s still available only for Linux x86 and Linux x86-64.

Based on  NOTE:742060.1 Release Schedule of Current Database Releases:

  • will be available for other major Unix/Linux platforms(HP-UX Itanium, Oracle Solaris SPARC (64-bit),  Oracle Solaris x86-64 (64-bit),  IBM AIX on POWER Systems) during the October 2011, perhaps during Oracle Open World 2011 or after it
  • for the rest popular platforms, like  Microsoft Windows (32-bit) and Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit), and not so popular like IBM Linux on System z, the release date is scheduled for Q4 2011
  • for HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) is will be available during 1Q 2011

Quite interesting fact from the same NOTE:742060.1: “for  HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) there is a note like this one 11.2 will be the last release on HP-UX PA-RISC“, but there are NO SUCH NOTE for HP-UX Itanium…

To download – use Patch number is 10404530. The size of patchset is about 5.0GB(+300MB to – more clever or more bugs ? ;)). Keep in mind that starting from Oracle provides patchsets as a full installation packages with Out-Of-Place upgrade feature.

Happy patching! 😉

PS. useful links:

PS2. more facts:

  • includes all fixes from the Patch Set Update (which includes CPUJUL2011).
  • for Oracle Solaris SPARC (64-bit) will include support to use Exadata Storage Cells – it’s required for Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, but
  • “Oracle Database 11g Release 2 ( Patch Set 2 Currently not supported on Exadata” – based on information from NOTE:888828.1 Database Machine and Exadata Storage Server 11g Release 2 (11.2) Supported Versions, but for SAGE(Storage Application for the Grid Environment) there already reserved release numbers 12.1.x, like for Enterprise Manager 12c, so may be SAGE will later go to or even to 12.1 ? 🙂
