Oracle Instant Client for Linux ARM aarch64

The first Instant Client release for Linux ARM is now available.

You can download the Oracle Instant Client 19.10 packages as acquainted ZIPs or
RPMs. Installation instructions and support information are in the Database Client Installation Guide for Linux.

It’s easy to do a quick test with SQL*Plus to an existing database:

$ wget https://download.oracle.com/otn_software/linux/instantclient/instantclient-basic-linux-arm64.zip
$ unzip instantclient-basic-linux-arm64.zip

$ wget https://download.oracle.com/otn_software/linux/instantclient/instantclient-sqlplus-linux-arm64.zip
$ unzip instantclient-sqlplus-linux-arm64.zip

$ instantclient_19_10/sqlplus [email protected]/orclpdb1

Of course you can use the libraries with your favorite languages like Python,
Go or Rust.

This release is only for the Instant Client, so now is a worthy time to try
connecting to an Oracle Cloud Database, such as proven in the Python Quick Start.

Supported distributions and hardware? What’s that I hear you say??? I know
many of you will ignore that bit of the documentation and immediately try these
out on your favorite IoT devices. And you’ll do some cool stuff – let us know
what you get up to.

The packages are also available from yum.oracle.com for Oracle Linux 8 and Oracle Linux 7. Instructions on installing from the update server using
yum or dnf are here.
