Transcript: 

So here we have a Data Transfer, a Flat File example, and here is the setup that we’re looking at. So if you start from the upper left corner, we are looking at 10 Analysts. They working with the six CPU, third-party Database. So it’s running on the six CPU server, this third-party Database. You have one DBA that is taking information from that Database. So Flat Files transferring it into the Oracle database. And in that Oracle Database, you will have 500 Traders who is accessing that Database, which is running on a six CPU server. So they have access to that particular information. So that’s the scenario. And now we’re sort of going to look into how are you going to license that? So again, 10 analysts who have access to a third- party Database, which is running on a six CPU server. One DBA is transferring Flat Files into the Oracle Database, which is also running on the six CPU server, from which there is further access to the Database where 500 Traders are working. So this is the situation. Now have a look here.

So in this example, because of the size, we are looking at Oracle Enterprise Edition, it can be licensed by either Processor or Named User Plus metrics. So basically, of course, all processes where the database is installed or running must be licensed. In this case, we are talking about six processes or licenses. We are not going into the details with calculating with the course and everything. This is just to simplify it. If we were to license this NUP, there’s basically two things that you need to consider. You need to consider the minimum usage, so the minimum licensing rules that comes into play. So you would take, and that’s 25 per CPU. So this is 25 times six. That’s a minimum licensing requirement of 150 NUPs if you were to license this particular setup.

However, you need to consider the greater of the two. So it’s either minimum of the actual usage, the greater of the two needs to be licensed. In this case, we have 500 Traders and we have one DBA who’s accessing the Database. And in this case, the number of licenses to be purchased at this setup is 501. So that is basically showing you that from a licensing perspective when you’re pushing out over Flat Files, even though that you have third-party DBA’s and you have all the analysts sitting in the other end, you don’t have to consider them as a part of the licensing scenario, because they don’t have any direct relationship with the Database in this case.
