Oracle announced the release of Oracle Standard Edition 2 to replace both Standard Edition and Standard Edition 1. There are some changes to the licensing which will certainly impact most customers. Don't get caught out, view this presentation to understand the detail you need to know.

Oracle announced on September 1st 2015 Oracle Standard Edition 2 (SE2). This edition will replace the previous Standard Edition (SE) and Standard Edition One (SE1).

The new SE 2 Database will be released as 12c release version 12.1.0.2. On a positive note the pricing is the same as the SE Database at $17,500 per socket. Unfortunately the socket count is restricted to 2 per server from the 4 sockets per server that we had with Standard Edition before.. Even using RAC will be limited to 2 nodes per cluster with 1 socket per node.

We also have changes to Named User Plus (NUPS), which now have a minimum of 10 per server not 5 per customer as it was before.


In terms of the end of life of prior SE and SE1 editions. SE and SE1 will be removed from the Price List on December 1, 2015. So if you still want to purchase these editions you can until then.

SE and SE1 customers will continue to receive Premier Support for existing licenses through the terminal release 12.1.0.1. until September 1st, 2016.

For release 11.2.0.4 of SE and SE1 this is is currently within Extended Support. The Extended Support fees have been waived for the first year of Extended Support until January 2016.

For Oracle Standard Edition (SE) customers wanting to migrate to Oracle Standard Edition 2 (SE2) there is no charge to migrate. NUPS and Sockets will migrate 1:1. Contracts will be amended to reflect the new changes to the licence metric.

Oracle Standard Edition One (SE1) will have to pay an uplift fee on support of 20% for the migration 1:1 of NUPS
