The long-awaited cloud version of the Oracle 12c Release is now available!
Larry Ellison (co-founder and Oracle CTO) finally announced the availability of the 12cR2 during his keynotes, but in a first step as a cloud version only (PDB as a Service). Furthermore, a new Oracle service was announced by Oracle’s CTO with the “Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service”!
Good to know about the “Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service!
There is no trial version and no access to the OS. A PDB can be quickly provisioned, though there is no access to the OS and some features are restrained (in order not to break the CDB). In fact, this new service will be entirely managed by Oracle and the version 12.2 will be launched afterwards. The « go life » date is not known so far.
