Oracle Database

Oracle Database is available in different editions, which can scale from small to large single servers and clusters of servers. To know the high-level information about different Oracle Database options, see Latest Oracle Database. Documentation links are at the bottom of the page.

Oracle Instant Client enables applications to connect local or remote Oracle Databases for development and production. You can install Oracle Instant Client on Oracle Solaris 11.3 or later versions using the command:

$ pkg install database/oracle/instantclient

For more information, see Oracle Instant Client.

Note -  As a pre-requisite to install the Oracle Database on Oracle Solaris, you must install the group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall group package. This group package has all the required packages.
