Available Software Release Packages

Downloads on My Oracle Support are grouped by product family, then product, then version. The version contains one or more downloads (patches).

For servers and blades, the pattern is similar. The product is the server. Each server contains a set of releases. These releases are not true software product releases, but rather are releases of updates for the server. These updates are called software releases and comprise several downloads, all tested together. Each download contains firmware, drivers, or utilities.

My Oracle Support has the same set of download types for this server family as shown in the following table. These can also be requested through a physical media request (PMR).
