Just as with PeopleTools 8.57, the release is initially available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and will not be available for on-premises environments until the 8.58.04 patch. Until then, we invite you to take advantage of the many benefits offered by Cloud Manager and of running PeopleSoft Applications in the Oracle Cloud.   Here's a link to more information on the latest version of Cloud Manager.
