Oracle`s Licensing Guidelines were last updated in May 2009. The original document is available here: www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pricing/specialty-topics/index.html. LIcenses databases are packaged with the SAP license. It is not dependent on CPU & user. However, as you try to move the database from Windows to UNIX, you need to purchase a new license for SAP. He`s right. All users who connect directly or indirectly to an Oracle dB must be authorized in some way. With 300 users, your cheapest option is the processor-based license. Although licensing designated users is an option, it would cost between $350 and $US 500 per user. That`s up to 150,000.Lately I checked the cost of my employer`s (Kansas State) processor-based license, 22,000/processor Please note that partitioning is almost always installed on the Enterprise edition. It is used by the Oracle database itself – this command does not provide information about the licensing requirement.
A license is the „right of use” (RTU) of the software and not the software itself. If you have a license, you can get a copy of the software media in any way – Download, use the CDs of your latest project, etc. There may be situations where options are used in Oracle`s technology or application stack that have not been paid for or in which the use is beyond the scope of the terms of the contract. Most of these cases are due to a lack of knowledge of Oracle`s licensing system and the inability of managers to regularly verify license usage. Oracle licenses can be purchased directly with Oracle, through an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) (in the case of ESL or ASFU licenses), or through an Oracle Partner (Oracle License Store). Ultimately, ASFU agreements can be complex with clauses and definitions that need to be fully understood for each partner/customer and then communicated to end users to ensure compliance with the rules. It is also likely that Oracle software, covered by an AFSU license, will limit functions (for example.B. Management Packs). If you do this wrong, it can lead to Oracle compliance issues. Thank you. I know Oracle DB lic needs to be purchased. Nothing comes from SAP for free.
Oracle Corporation and SAP SE support our joint customers with long-standing reseller and customer superport agreements that provide better access to Oracle hardware and software technologies and best-in-class customer service, both on-premises in your own data center and in the cloud. Organizations that wish to use Oracle software in this way must join the Oracle Partner network and maintain this membership for the duration of the ASFU agreement. You also agree to oracle Partner Network Master Distribution Agreement and its addition to the Application Specific Full Use Program Distribution Agreement. We have a license agreement on SAP CRM, ERP, XI on Oracle 10.2.0.4. All were installed as a central installation on three stand-alone Windows 2003 servers. If you run your SAP software on Oracle databases and purchased your Oracle licenses through SAP (called „Runtime” licenses), your costs are now 7% higher than two years ago. An embedded software license (ESL)  is a very restrictive type of license, available from independent software vendors (ISVs) that integrate Oracle technology into their product. An end user may not even be aware that the software contains Oracle technology and should not be able to access it directly as a developer or system administrator….
