Oracle database and operating support matrix

The following matrix shows a matrix of operating systems, database version and certification status. All information is taken from the database documentation and information freely available on the internet (e.g. oracle forums, blogs). The information is structured first into operating systems (Windows, Linux, Other) and further divided into version numbers and architecture (32-bit or 64-bit).

Table annotations

  • n/a: “not supported or certified”; for this there might be several reasons, for instance:
    • operating system too old
    • mixing 32-bit operating system with 64-bit database or vice versa
    • database for this platform not available
  • Projected: will be certified in the future; at this point of time this also counts as “not supported”

    @Ronny Egner

    I have a brand new IBM Z10 with zVM, we need to install a lot of zLinux and the only version of Red Hat that I found is supported by Oracle DataBase is 5.x but I want to check if Red Hat 6.1 for System Z is supported by Oracle. Do you know that?

    Nice information. You are requested to add Oracle 12c database matrix too in this detail. It will be helpful to us.
