Pricing and Licensing
Oracle provides flexible pricing and licensing options to cater to different business needs. Pricing can be based on a “Named User Plus Software Update License & Support” or a “Processor License” model.
A named user plus model is ideal for companies with a known user base. In contrast, a processor license model suits businesses that cannot count users and have internet-based applications.
For example, if a company wants to license a server with WebCenter Content and they have 50 Named User Plus, the cost would be 50 (Named User Plus) * $3,450 (Cost per Named User Plus) = $172,500.
For licensing a server with four cores of Intel, the total cost would be 2 (Oracle Processor Licenses) * $172,500 (Cost per Processor License) = $345,000. The number of Oracle Processor Licenses required is 0.5 (Oracle licensing calculation for Intel) * 4 (Number of cores).
