Oracle Licensing

Is Container any different from a VM in a cluster with regards to the way licenses are measured ?

Did anyone seen benefits on Oracle license optimization, post implementation of containers?

No expert here, though what I’ve read and discussed with peers it has similarities. Once the image has been brought into a host or a note likely will cause you to license at that level (host/node). Attached is a good overview I refer to in “discussions”

Dear Ram,

The virtualization topic is addressed in the following pdf: https://www.oracle.com/a/ocom/docs/linux/ol-kvm-hard-partitioning.pdf.

Containers could be seen as hard or soft portioning depending on the technology.

Best regards
