oracle licencsing and hard partition
Posted on 2015-01-12
Use Oracle Virtual Manager to manage our virtual Oracle servers. Few things I dont understand with regards to licencing and hard partitioning.
I understand the need to restrict to a number of CPUs if thats all the licence is for. But why cant this be done with max cpus setting rather than having to pin to specific CPUs? Am I right there?
If you pin to specific CPUs then surely you're losing the flexibility that virtualisation brings?
Also, Oracle document is a little unclear. Is it one licence = 4 vCPUs? Or is this only with Trusted partitions using Oracle Enterprise Manager?
