Here are the key points to remember:

  • Processor Count: The number of subscriptions required is determined by counting all processors in the nodes in the Kubernetes clusters where Verrazzano images are pulled.
  • Virtual Machines: 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.
  • Admin Cluster: When a Kubernetes cluster is used as a dedicated Verrazzano Admin cluster, and no managed workloads are run in it, nodes in that cluster can be excluded from the count of processors that require a subscription.
