NOTE:

It is not recommended to run Oracle Database on OpenIndiana in a production environment. Oracle has a restricted list of supported operating systems and unfortunately OpenIndiana is not in it.

For development purposes it is also possible to setup Oracle Database 18, 19 and 21.3 using Vagrant. See the Vagrant documentation for more information.
