Oracle Technology Price list – How to calculate pricing

Oracle Technology Price list does not have a how-to guide on how to read it and calculate pricing for on-premise software licenses.

When you read this article, you should have a copy of the Oracle Technology Price list open. 

Remember that Oracle technology pricing may change, so always look at the current price list. This article only covers Oracle technology and does not deal with Oracle Java licensing.

This article should guide you in reading and calculating your Oracle license costs and pricing, not replacing the Oracle price list. However, Oracle pricing (USD) has not changed for many years.

Oracle Technology Price List – How to calculate Oracle license price

  • Oracle Database Enterprise Edition – The license price for the processor is $ 47,500
  • Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 – The license price for the processor is $ 17,500
  • Personal Edition – The license price per user is $ 400
  • The Mobile Server License price for the processor is $ 23,000
  • The NoSQL Database Enterprise Edition License price for the processor is $ 10,000

Let’s begin by explaining how the Oracle Technology price list works.

Named User Plus

This is the license fee for 1 Named User Plus. Remember that when licensing Oracle software, there are always minimum licensing user requirements to apply.

For example, Standard Edition 2 requires 10 Named User Plus per server, and Database Enterprise Edition is core-based, with 25 per Oracle processor definition. You cannot license Enterprise Edition with seven named users plus; you need 25 as a minimum per “Oracle processor,” which is defined by you calculating the core licensing.

Software Update License & Support

This is the annual maintenance fee that you will pay to Oracle. You notice that the fees are 22% of the license fees.

If you receive discounts on your Oracle license purchase, you will also receive a discount on annual maintenance.

Oracle Processor License – This is the price for 1 Oracle processor license. Pay attention to the fact that Oracle does not calculate one physical processor = 1 Oracle processor license.

There is a license calculation to establish how many Oracle Processor licenses you get.

The software update license & support field works the same for named user plus.

There is no price list for Oracle ULA; you must purchase licenses after an Oracle license audit. Oracle will claim that the penalty fees are always at the list price + backdated support.

Oracle Database Enterprise Edition Options – Licensing Costs

Oracle Database Enterprise Edition Options – Licensing Costs

In-Memory Database Cache and In-Memory Database Cache for Oracle Applications, only the processors on which the Times Ten In-Memory Database component of the In-Memory Database Cache program is installed and/or running must be counted to determine the number of licenses required.

Database Enterprise Management – License costs

Let’s stop here and explain how to read the pricing. The pricing for these products on the Oracle Technology price list works the same as for Oracle Database products.

Example:

Real Application Cluster has a license price of $ 460 per Named User Plus, and the support fees are $ 101.20 per user.

If we want to know how much 200 x Named User Plus licenses for Real Application Clusters cost, we multiply 200x by $ 460 = $ 92,000 in license fees.
The support will be calculated as 200 x $ 101.20 = $ 20,240

The list prices for Oracle Real Application Clusters

License fees: $ 92,000
Support fees: $ 20,240

Total fees to be paid to Oracle: $ 112,240  (92000+20240)

For the following programs, Data Masking and Subsetting Pack, only the users of the database servers where masked data or data subsets originate must be licensed

Verrazzano Enterprise Container Platform

Verrazzano pricing

Verrazzano Container Platform is licensed per processor and is only available as an annual subscription. There is no perpetual license available to purchase.

All processors in the nodes in the Kubernetes clusters where Verrazzano images are pulled must be counted when determining the number of subscriptions required. If any Kubernetes node is a virtual machine, then the number of processors on that node is subject to the guidelines documented in the Oracle Partitioning Policy. When a Kubernetes cluster is used as a dedicated Verrazzano Admin cluster, and no managed workloads are run in that cluster, nodes in that cluster can be excluded from the count of processors that require a subscription.

Verrazzano Enterprise Container Platform Annual Subscription: This is defined as the right to use the specified Program by the applicable license metric and to receive Oracle Software Update License & Support services for the subscription period specified on the ordering document. The subscription is effective upon the effective date of the ordering document unless otherwise stated in Your ordering document. If your order was placed through the Oracle Store, the effective date is when Oracle accepts your order. Oracle Software Update License & Support services are provided under the applicable technical support policies in effect at the time the services are provided. You may renew your subscription at the end of Your subscription, if available, at the current fees for the applicable subscription. If you choose not to renew your subscription, your right to use the program will be terminated. You must de-install all software (including any applications, tools, and binaries) provided. You may be subject to reinstatement fees if You later choose to reactivate Your subscription.

Important Oracle licensing definitions

Application User: is defined as an individual authorized by you to use the applicable licensed application programs which are installed on a single server or on multiple servers regardless of whether the individual is actively using the programs at any given time. Suppose you license the Oracle Self Service Work Request option in conjunction with Oracle Enterprise Asset Management. In that case, you are required to maintain licenses for the equivalent number of Application Users licensed and you are granted unlimited access to initiate work requests, view work request status and view scheduled completion date for your entire employee population. Applications Users licensed for Oracle Order Management are allowed to manually enter orders directly into the programs but any orders entered electronically from other sources must be licensed separately. For Oracle Sourcing, Oracle iSupplier Portal, and Oracle Services Procurement programs, use by your external suppliers is included with your application user licenses.

Named User Plus: is defined as an individual authorized by you to use the programs which are installed on a single server or multiple servers, regardless of whether the individual is actively using the programs at any given time. A non human operated device will be counted as a named user plus in addition to all individuals authorized to use the programs, if such devices can access the programs. If multiplexing hardware or software (e.g., a TP monitor or a web server product) is used, this number must be measured at the multiplexing front end. Automated batching of data from computer to computer is permitted. You are responsible for ensuring that the named user plus per processor minimums are maintained for the programs contained in the user minimum table in the licensing rules section; the minimums table provides for the minimum number of named users plus required and all actual users must be licensed.

For the purposes of the following programs: Configuration Management Pack for Applications, System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Databases, System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Middleware, Management Pack for Non-Oracle Middleware, Management Pack for WebCenter Suite, only the users of the program that is being managed/monitored are counted for the purpose of determining the number of licenses required

Processor: shall be defined as all processors where the Oracle programs are installed and/or running. Programs licensed on a processor basis may be accessed by your internal users (including agents and contractors) and by your third party users. The number of required licenses shall be determined by multiplying the total number of cores of the processor by a core processor licensing factor specified on the Oracle Processor Core Factor Table which can be accessed at http://oracle.com/contracts. All cores on all multicore chips for each licensed program are to be aggregated before multiplying by the appropriate core processor licensing factor and all fractions of a number are to be rounded up to the next whole number. When licensing Oracle programs with Standard Edition One, Standard Edition 2 or Standard Edition in the product name (with the exception of WebCenter Enterprise Capture Standard Edition, Java SE Support, Java SE Advanced, and Java SE Suite), a processor is counted equivalent to an occupied socket; however, in the case of multi-chip modules, each chip in the multi-chip module is counted as one occupied socket.

For example, a multicore chip based server with an Oracle Processor Core Factor of 0.25 installed and/or running the program (other than Standard Edition One programs or Standard Edition programs) on 6 cores would require 2 processor licenses (6 multiplied by a core processor licensing factor of .25 equals 1.50, which is then rounded up to the next whole number, which is 2). As another example, a multicore server for a hardware platform not specified in the Oracle Processor Core Factor Table installed and/or running the program on 10 cores would require 10 processor licenses (10 multiplied by a core processor licensing factor of 1.0 for ‘All other multicore chips’ equals 10)

For the purposes of the following programs: Configuration Management Pack for Applications, System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Databases, System Monitoring Plug-in for Non Oracle Middleware, Management Pack for Non-Oracle Middleware, Management Pack for WebCenter Suite, only the processors on which the program that is being managed/monitored are running are counted for the purpose of determining the number of licenses required.

What about Oracle Unlimited License Agreement Pricing? – There is no price list for Oracle ULA. They are negotiated based on each negotiation’s specifics.
