Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle now supports the January 2023 Release Update (RU) Release 2 for Oracle Database 19c and Oracle Database 21c in the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, and the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet. The January 2023 RU Release 2 provides updated daylight savings time definitions provided by Oracle after the January 2023 RU was delivered.
Oracle RUs contain bug fixes and other critical security updates. To learn more about the Oracle Database RUs supported on Amazon RDS for each engine version, see the Amazon RDS for Oracle engine release notes. The January 2023 RU Release 2 matches the January 2023 RU with the exception of updated daylight savings time definitions for some Mexico time zones. Due to the limited geographical applicability of the release, this release will not be applied automatically to DB instances with auto minor version upgrade (AmVU) enabled. Customers may apply this release to instances themselves at any time or schedule the upgrade to be applied during a maintenance window.
Amazon RDS for Oracle makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale Oracle Database deployments in the cloud. See the Amazon RDS for Oracle Database Pricing page for complete regional availability information.
