I would only upgrade a running application to 12. If you don't signal before 31-May-2017 to Oracle that you want to purchase Extended Support you'll fall automatically into Sustaining Support. The more recent Oracle Database 12cR1 have the release 12. We are planning to upgrade 11. You can also take advantage of new features such as Multitenancy and Application Continuity. Moreover there is a clear statement in the document saying that is necessary to be at least on the 11. For a description what terms such as Premier Support, Extended Support and Sustaining Support mean please refer to the.
Upgrading As suggested by Oracle's document there are two options: migrate to the latest 11g release 11. This is mentioned on the note 1431799, 1631931 and the most important, 2098258. Since the advisor explicitly encourages testing any and all suggestions on a test non-production environment advisor should not held liable or responsible for any actions taken based on the given advice. All that has changed now that Oracle has announced that Extended Support fees for 11g will be waived until May 2017 and 11. Last week, during a quiet working morning, my colleague sent me a link that changed my working focus for few hours.
For details about this, see Oracle 10g Release 1 was desupported on 31 January and extended support ended on 31 January. We at Rittman Mead are in favour of a smart upgrade planning and with our can take care of it while you keep focusing on what matters in your company. Otherwise you'll get access after Waived Extended Support has ended to all fixes produced in the period of Premier and Waived Extended Support. An Omotion utility is provided to migrate One Node instances to other nodes in the cluster without any downtime to the application. This is helpfull as it can take a while for us to get patchsets certified internally and by vendors. And unfortunately a lot of database I see today when visiting customers are not even on 11. This information can be found in.
Probably you don't want to wait until the end of next year having to rush for the upgrade because your system is getting out of support. But not to patches produced after that period. For your new projects, you should go to the latest patchset: 12. Our can help understanding and solving bottlenecks. You have until May 2017 before you have to start paying extra money and December 2020 before the patches stop coming in. Will I benefit from the extended support till May 2017? The port was released on 23 October. But those patch sets are not there yet.
Premier Support Ended: 31-Jan-2015 Extended Support Ends: 31-Dec-2020 For Oracle Database 11. Oracle support documents mentioned in this post should be directly taken as reference. This is a really good service. It has been waived until Feb. But issue is not yet resolved.
Oracle Extended support only applies to the last patchset this is not mentioned but, again, standard Oracle It also mentions that the first year of extended support is free. There's no bug fixing support for Oracle Database 11. This is my guess why Support management has extended the waived extended support period for 11. There's no bug fixing support for Oracle Database 11. So they are giving us more time again. I wonder if you read the blog post above? Products no longer under Extended Support don't get patches or bug fixes.
Disclaimer: Advice is provided to the best of my knowledge but no implicit or explicit warranties are provided. If we don't upgrade to Oracle 12, what happens when free extended support ends in May-2017? The grace period, mentioned in is the period of time usually one year following the release of a patch set in which Oracle provides fixes for both the new and previous patch set. That means you have 1. Name Please enter your name. And of course there are a ton of changes in 12.
However it still requires database schema changes, moreover an in-place upgrade has associated risk of having unavailable live environments until all issues are fixed; risk that can be mitigated with an out-of-place upgrade. There is a requirement on the source 11g version meaning that if you are currently on a pre-11. There is an additional fee for Extended Support. I am looking to bring up certain open source libraries up to speed with 12c new features so I do not have a reason to purchase even personal developer license. Our migration approach reduces the Code Freeze time to a minimum; the time to swap between versions in the production environment can also be minimised.
