Oracle Licensing in the Cloud

Oracle recently produced an updated version of their Oracle Licensing in the Cloud policy document. This Version 1 briefing on Oracle Licensing in the Cloud provides discussion on the impact of this change. Version 1 are independent Oracle licensing experts with over 15 years’ experience.

Oracle’s latest Cloud Policy changes, in effect, double the cost of licensing Oracle workloads in AWS EC2, RDS and Azure environments when compared to either Oracle Cloud or comparable on-premise hardware. Although the policy document is non-contractual, it should be borne in mind that dismissal of the entire document has considerations which should be fully understood.
