Oracle licensing: recent changes?

Posted by martijnl on April 6, 2008

Oracle seems to have changed something in their licensing policy because in two recent cases I have heard of companies being able to license Oracle on a per host basis in stead of per cluster.

I have heard this now in two seperate instances with one person mentioning that this had changed in the last months because of Oracle’s own initiatives with virtualization. If anyone has recent info I am very interested if there has been a change in Oracle’s licensing policy.

    You are correct there have been some changes relating to Oracle’s “Oracle VM” product which will allow you to hard partition your environment using their virtualization software. Please let me know if you need more detail and I’d be happy to contact you.
