We are excited to announce four new features for Amazon RDS for Oracle. Starting today, Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports:
- Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC)
- Oracle Application Express 4.1 (Oracle APEX)
- Oracle XML DB Repository
- Oracle Time Zone
These four features are available to you at no additional charge for all supported RDS for Oracle licensing models in all Regions where Amazon RDS for Oracle is available.
All of the above features are available immediately for new RDS for Oracle DB Instances launched with the 188.8.131.52.v4 (v4) DB Engine. Support for Amazon VPC is available for new DB Instances of all engine versions. The v4 DB Engine also incorporates Oracle's April and July Patch Set Updates. Customers will be able to upgrade existing v3 DB Instances to v4 within a few weeks.
