ODA – a brief view on a virtualized platform

Received a pdf from Oracle with the new features of the Oracle Database Appliance (when you are using the OracleVM-option).

Among other things, the two last sheets about the licensing had my attention too. I’m just showing the slides, haven’t worked with it, so I can’t tell you in detail the experiences. But the slides may give you an idea how the Virtualized Platform will look like in the new ODA, and how it will be licensed.

 

ODA_how_VM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_what_DOM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_what_BASE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_db_size

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_what_deploy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_license_1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ODA_license_2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What I read here is that you leave the 24 cores enabled (default when you receive it), but you get control of the licences by assigning CPU’s to the ODA_BASE. Sounds familiar.

The last two sheets are about the ODA_BASE licensing, so I assume that when you run Weblogic in the application-VM’s (Domain-U) you have to pay for it. I will sort this out.

Regards…

    Hi Job,

    Have you read this document? http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/pricing/partitioning-070609.pdf

    My friend Simon did some writing about it too: http://www.veriton.co.uk/roller/fmw/entry/oracle_trusted_partitions_dynamic_and

    What is relevant: on Oracle engineered systems (like ODA) you get Oracle Trusted Partitions, which means that you pay what you use (more or less).

    Cheers,

    Jacco
