Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Licensing costs are less for Oracle Linux and for clients moving to the Oracle Cloud, as it is included in the price of the subscription.I recommend this for any customer wanting to reduce their licensing costs for packaged applications.If you choose Oracle hardware, then this virtualization software is included along with support.We were able to deploy our solution at near zero cost compared to other vendors since the licenses come with our Oracle hardware.The cost of this solution is cheap. It is one of the reasons we chose Oracle VM. It is truly "pocket- friendly."Pricing and licensing is one of the main decision making reasons for going to Oracle VM because it was cost effective.If you buy an Oracle server, this solution is free. You have to only pay for support.I do not have experience with the pricing and licensing of the product.
