System Requirements for Oracle


Verify that your environment meets the system requirements for Oracle.

Operating System

Important: Use the most recent version of the operating system that is listed. The Metallic software fully supports the most recent version of an operating system, until the vendor ends support. More recent versions of the Metallic software might not install on operating systems that are not supported by the vendor anymore. For information about the support lifecycle of an operating system, contact the vendor.

The following operating system packages are supported; however, the packages listed in the install server package dialog depend on the cloud vendor you are using or whether the database is running on-premises.

  • AIX 64-bit

  • HP-UX 64-bit

  • Linux 64-bit

  • PowerPC 64-bit

  • Solaris 64-bit

  • Windows 64-bit

Software That Is Automatically Installed

.NET Framework

On most versions of Windows, the .NET Framework 4.7 is automatically installed.

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017

Starting with Service Pack 18, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 (vcredist2017.exe) is automatically installed.

If a computer does not have the most recent Windows updates, the installation of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 will fail in installing Universal C Runtime. The following Windows updates must be installed to prevent the installation failure. The updates are not required on the most recent Windows operating system versions, such as Microsoft Windows 10 and Microsoft Windows Server 2016, because these versions have the Universal C Runtime already installed.
