Software Releases

Software releases on My Oracle Support are grouped by product family (such as Oracle Server), then the product (the specific server or blade), and finally the software release version. A software release contains all the updated software and firmware for your server or blade as a set of downloadable files (patches), including firmware, drivers, tools, or utilities, all tested together to be compatible with your server.

Each patch is a zip file that contains a ReadMe file and a set of subdirectories containing firmware or software files. The ReadMe file contains details on the components that have changed since the prior software release and the bugs that have been fixed.

My Oracle Support provides the set of software releases for your server as described in the following table. You can obtain these software releases by downloading the files from My Oracle Support.
