Get Help From Oracle Licensing Experts

What are Oracle Licensing Experts?

The right Oracle licensing partners are essential to reduce your overall spending with Oracle while maintaining license compliance. It is strongly recommended that you work with a partner, not a reseller, of Oracle software. 

The Oracle licensing provider should have a background in Oracle license management (audit team). If they don’t, you are taking a huge risk.

When you are considering purchasing Oracle software, it is essential to understand your licensing options. While many believe they know the basics, the reality is more complicated.

Oracle licensing rules are complex and often change frequently. Fortunately, you can get expert help to negotiate the best license for your needs. Below, we will describe the different types of Oracle licensing contracts and what you should look for in a licensing agreement. This will make your job easier and allow you to maximize the value of your Oracle licensing.

A license can vary depending on how you divide the system. Oracle offers processor-based licensing, but the definition of a processor can vary significantly from that of hardware vendors.

As such, if you are running a high-user, web-facing environment, you will need a more expensive “processor” license. In addition, Oracle only considers hard partitioning and not soft partitioning. That means you should not partition your server using VMWare, as these practices could sky-high your bill.

Oracle licensing physical vs. virtual

There are many differences between Oracle licensing for virtual and physical servers. For example, an Oracle customer may run several Oracle Enterprise Edition databases on a single server with two sockets, each equipped with an Intel XEON X7560 8 cores processor.

While a single server may have eight cores, a virtual machine can be pinned to only a few cores. A similar principle applies when Oracle products are licensed for virtualization. Oracle will often not allow you only to license the few cores you pinned down to the Oracle environment.

Licensing software has many aspects, including the number of users, editions, versions, and factors independent of Oracle.

Read individual customer agreements or contact Redress Compliance to learn more about Oracle licensing. Oracle has the right to audit its customers. It is your responsibility to comply with Oracle’s licensing policies, and any mistakes will result in fines of up to $1 million. If you are unsure what Oracle licensing means, we recommend getting help.

Oracle license management services

If you’re looking for a Managed Service Provider specializing in Oracle license management, you’ve come to the right place. Oracle is one of the world’s largest and most expensive software providers.

While many organizations spend significant money on the software, the licensing process can be complex. With so many licenses and hundreds of separately licensable modules for Oracle applications such as the E-business suite, it’s easy to see how Oracle can be an expensive and complicated solution.

Managing multiple license terms and conditions is a complex task. As IT environments move to the cloud or virtual, it becomes even more difficult to maintain a true picture of usage.

That’s where Redress Compliance comes in. They specialize in Oracle license management and deliver these services from a global team of experienced consultants with extensive knowledge of Oracle licensing policies.

With their expertise, Redress can ensure your company’s compliance while reducing costs. Java licensing is causing many customers globally to review Java licenses and their Oracle software assets.

We are also experts at Oracle OEM/ISV license models such as Oracle ASFU, Oracle ESL, and Oracle prop hosting.

Oracle Software Investment Advisory

The Software Investment Advisory business unit is a free service Oracle offers its existing customers. Companies can better plan and structure their paths to the cloud through this service.

Oracle experts will be available to answer questions and provide advice. The SIA business unit is structured around four key principles. Those principles include proactive account management, helping customers realize the value of Oracle assets, providing consulting services, and supporting complex transformation initiatives. Oracle is the world’s largest enterprise software vendor.

It is important to remember that Oracle SIA is not independent, and if they identify compliance issues, this will be reported to Oracle audit and sales teams.

Unlimited agreements

Oracle unlimited agreements are notoriously difficult to leave; Oracle has a process called Oracle ULA certification which includes an audit at the end. An Oracle license expert can independently review your licensing position before you decide to share it with Oracle.

Oracle license report

After an Oracle audit, you must review the report and ensure your company is compliant. Oracle license experts perform audits and require usage and deployment data to verify compliance. After reviewing the report, you’ll have 30 days to buy Oracle licenses. If you don’t have the resources to hire an Oracle licensing expert, consider the cost of Oracle enterprise software is 47,500 $ per processor license.
