Is Oracle Database version end of life ?

Posted by FatDBA on February 25, 2022

Lately a question was asked – For how long Oracle Database version will be supported ? There are so many documents and blogs are available but they at the same time brings lot of confusion. So I thought to write a quick post about ES or regular support of Oracle DB 12cR2.

The bug fixing & full error corrections has already been ended for Oracle on Nov 20, 2020, and on the top there has no plans from oracle is not eligible for Extended Support (ES). At the moment is running on the limited Error Correction from Dec 1, 2020 through March 31, 2022. Limited Error Correction means only Sev 1 and Security Updates only.

At the moment only 19c is the version that gives you a long term support, as the full span of bug fixing support until 31-APR-2024 with the option to have Extended Support until 31-Apr-2027. Premier Support (PS) ends April 30, 2024, Extended Support (ES) fees will be required beginning May 01, 2024 through April 30, 2027. Error Correction / Patching is available through April 30, 2027 with paid ES. Without paid ES, patching is only available until April 30, 2024

Hope It Helped!
