Oracle Software Delivery Cloud 101
The Oracle Software Delivery Cloud allows you to download all Oracle software that are licensable.
There are three different portals that you could use. Aside from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, there is also the:
- Oracle Software Delivery Cloud for Linux and VM, which has all the media packs you need for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux.
- Oracle Software Delivery Cloud: 1-click
In order to use the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud, you would need to have your own Oracle account with a verified e-mail address.
When using the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud: 1-Click Portal, however, you need to have an order number with you. Every booked order would have a corresponding order number that you can get from an authorized reseller or Oracle sales representative that you’ve worked with to purchase the license.

3. To download, sign in to your Oracle account on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud page at https://edelivery.oracle.com.
4. You would need to agree to both the export restrictions and the terms of service to continue.
5. Select the product pack and the platform you want to download.
6. A search result would come out. Tick on the tick box next to the product that you want to download. You will be shown a page that includes a download button on the first column.
7. Click on the download button. A pop-up window will appear where you need to click on OK to start the download.
To determine if your download has been completed correctly, check the file size of your downloaded file against the file size indicated in the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud site.
You can also check the SHA-1 and MD5 data that you can find under the View Digest button on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
If you are having problems with your connection or having trouble completing a file, consider using a download manager. A download manager is a software that allows you to resume downloading if your file transfer gets interrupted. Download managers are also a great option if you want to download several files that you can leave unattended.
Do not use a computer that uses a proxy server on a 32-bit platform. You will only get a zero-byte file if you do this.
If you are having problems downloading, try to download at a different time. Or you can use a download manager as we have suggested.
After downloading, you would need to unzip the files you have. If you are using an ISO version, then you should unzip the files first before burning them onto a DVD or CD.
