Oracle could do better – licenses for virtualisation

Posted by pridham on March 2, 2009

Microsoft, IBM, and CA are among major vendors that have made their software licensing policies more virtualization friendly in the past year. Other software vendors –namely Oracle — hold to licensing policies designed for the physical world, according to Burton Group virtualization expert Chris Wolf.

“Most vendors are moving away from physical-based licensing, [but] Oracle [Corp.] is the biggest example of a company that is a pain point for virtualization users; they don’t officially support VMware, and their licensing is still bound to physical hardware,” Wolf said.

The problem with the old school of licensing – which is based on physical CPU, CPU socket, or core – is that virtual machines (VMs) require flexibility. Tying licenses to physical resources complicates compliance auditing and data centers often end up licensing to the greatest common denominator, according to Wolf.
