Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle now supports the October 2021 Patch Set Update (PSU) for Oracle Database 12.1. October 2021 Release Updates (RU) for Oracle Database 12.2 and 19c is already launched.

Oracle PSUs contain bug fixes and other critical security updates. Beginning with Oracle Database version, Amazon RDS for Oracle supports Release Updates (RU) in place of the PSU. To learn more about the Oracle PSUs supported on Amazon RDS, see the Amazon RDS patch update documentation. If the Auto minor version upgrade (AmVU) option is enabled, the DB instance is upgraded to the latest quarterly PSU or RU six to eight weeks after it is made available by Amazon RDS for Oracle in your AWS region. These upgrades will happen during the maintenance window. To learn more, see the Amazon RDS maintenance window documentation.

Amazon RDS for Oracle is a fully managed commercial database that 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.
