3 ways to reduce Oracle license costs

  1. 1. Website:www.seric.co.uk Twitter: @SericSystems 1 3 WAYS TO REDUCE ORACLE LICENSE IBM POWER SUB CAPACITY LICENSING In a virtual x86 world, every physical core, weather used for Oracle of not requires an Oracle license. For Power, Oracle is licensed per core assigned to the Oracle partition. IBM POWER PERFORMANCE Power is 2x faster than x86 system according to Oracle published benchmarks http://www.oracle.com/us/solutions/benchmark/apps-benchmark/results-166922.html IBM FLASHSYSTEM Your CPU is often sitting waiting on data coming back from disk. This means you are licensing Oracle to sit there and wait. IBM FlashSystems bring data back in a flash meaning less wait time and therefore you don’t need so many cores again! EXAMPLE SAVING £530,000 + Based on 32 physical cores with 10 for Oracle,1 years maintenance and a 2 x power performance, with Oracle pricing DESCRIPTION License Maintenance Enterprise Edition Database £31,839.00 £7,004.64 Partitioning £7,708.00 £1,695.86 Takes an Oracle license cost of £771,960 for x86 to £241,237 for Power Further gains can be made by employing an IBM FlashSystem. If you provide Seric with an AWR report we can provide a report showing potential benefits of a FlashSystem
