COSTS OF ORACLE - how much does database cost, and what software do i need?
Posted on 2004-10-11
I am working in my first role since graduating using databases, and am about to implement a db for my company - the question is, how much does it cost for a company of 12 employees, most in London, one in Paris and soon an office in New York to implement an Oracle Database?
What do I need - just Oracle (9i?) database standard edition? and the licenses for 12 users at about £80 each (according to Oracles website)
I have Oracle installed at home, for my study, but would not know how to implement in this business environment. we have a server what would the recommended spec for this be if the system was to run oracle? and if someone could give me a very basic overview of how the db would be used by the french staff / new york based staff i would be grateful. We have a vpn that the french staff use at the moment. I know database design, implementation etc, but not as a corporate networked system - i hope this makes sense!
Your help is appreciated,
