Downloads for Oracle or SQL Server, depending on which BladeLogic RDS deployment option you selected.

Note that the BladeLogic RDS comes pre-installed with Oracle XE database that you can use out of the box. However, because Oracle XE cannot be scaled easily, you may need to configure an external Oracle or SQL database server using the database dump files. For more information about configuring an external database, see Configuring the BladeLogic RDS components.
