Oracle Licensing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Discover the most frequently asked questions about Oracle licensing and discover what our licensing experts suggest.

Oracle Licensing mistakes DSP can help you avoid

  • Use of Virtualisation software and Hardware Partitioning: Is your partitioning techniques, either at a Hardware level or at a Hypervisor, recognised by Oracle as a valid way of pinning resources?
  • Use of Enterprise Edition Options or Management Packs: If these are in use, are they correctly licensed, do they match the database licenses for the server in question?
  • Database Edition: Use of Enterprise Edition is key as this mandates that all cores in servers count towards licensing, whereas Standard Editions just count occupied sockets.
  • Matching support levels: Oracle insist under their policies and terms that you must match support levels to be compliant. You cannot have some licenses in active support and licenses in the same product set where it has lapsed or been cancelled.
  • Know your definitions of users: Oracle counts both human and non-human users. It is licensed on specifically named individuals or non-human interfaces e.g. 3 different shifts with 10 different named employees on each, would require 30 licenses.
