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.

For more information about configuring an external database, see Configuring the BladeLogic RDS components.
