Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) Custom for Oracle now supports Oracle Database versions 12.2 and 18c. Amazon RDS Custom is a managed database service for applications that require customization of the underlying operating system and database environment. With support now added for 12.2 and 18c, you can now run your legacy, packaged and customized applications that are dependent on these database versions on Amazon RDS Custom for Oracle.

To create an Amazon RDS Custom for Oracle DB instance, you start by building a custom engine version (CEV) by supplying your own database installation media files for a given version. You can create a CEV by choosing the ‘Create’ operation under Custom engine version menu in AWS Management Console. Alternatively, you can create a CEV using the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).
