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.
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.
