“A brief summary on video about the presentation we’ve given at VMworld Barcelona, pointing out the licensing issues in virtualized environments. We hope this will clarify some of the misunderstandings, and enable you to flip the game around and push back to Oracle with more confidence.”
The two main questions answered are:
How is Standard Edition for virtual environments possible with Oracle and Vsphere?
When you install Oracle Enterprise Edition on a virtual machine do you have to pay for the sockets that the virtual machine lives on or pay for the entire cluster or is their an alternative?
Two great lines:
re: Choosing which version to install “Customers are installing Enterprise Edition because they are used to installing Enterprise Edition – but they don’t really need it”
re: Licensing Oracle in Virtual environmens within the Oracle contract “It’s basically incomprehensible!”
The Oracle ‘whitepaper’ Daniel and Judica refer to can be found here entitled ‘Oracle Partitioning Policy‘. Notice the bold type regarding using soft partitions and the comment in the footer stating it is for information use only and not relevant to your contract.
