I will explain Oracle 20c New Features and Step by Step Installation Oracle Database 20c on Linux 7.6 in this article.
Oracle will release 20c at the beginning of 2020 after Oracle 19c. Before Oracle 18c, Oracle has released 12c, 11g and 10g and so on.
I think that the old release naming was more sensible than now for me.
Oracle was released new major version in a every 3-5 years until Oracle 12c.
Oracle has started to release new major version number every year with 18c.
Firstly, Oracle has released 18c at the 2018, and released 19c at the 2019.
Now, Oracle will release 20c at the beginning of 2020 year.
Actually, I don’t like these so many versions but we will have to get used to this situation 😉
Well, What are the new features of Oracle 20c ?
- the non-CDB architecture will be desupported with Oracle 20c
- The usage of Multitenant architecture will be mandatory.
- A New JSON Datatype for SQL and PL/SQL in 20c
