The Oracle 19c Waived-fee Extended Support has been recently extended, giving clients  more runway to make crucial decisions about their database systems. The extension, now reaching until April 30, 2026, adds an extra 12 months on top of the previous date, allowing businesses to breathe a little easier before considering the leap to a 23c upgrade.

What’s more, this announcement brings with it a significant advantage. Clients who opt for the 19c upgrade can now enjoy a better return on investment, thanks to the extended support timeline. As a cherry on top, Oracle’s upcoming 23c release, which hasn’t yet hit the public domain, only reinforces the logic behind this extended support – 23c can wait while businesses harness the benefits of the current offering.

More information can be found in Oracle’s “Release Schedule of Current Database Releases” (Doc ID 742060.1) pages. 

Understanding Oracle Support Tiers

Software support contracts are an integral part of the modern IT landscape. They ensure that your customized, paid-for software continues to function smoothly and securely. However, over time, the value of these contracts can diminish as vendors cut back on support services while increasing fees. In particular, Oracle customers often face this predicament, even with the vendor’s promise of lifetime support.

Oracle offers three levels of support, each with its own set of features. Learn more about Oracle’s support tiers.
