Pricing and Cost Advice

"Oracle VM is free if you are running it on Oracle infrastructure hardware, otherwise, it is subscription-based.""Oracle is free of charge, although you have to have a subscription for the support.""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.""With having a global contract, we get some discounts.""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.""All other vendors are selling their licenses to use the VM, but Oracle isn't doing that, which is its biggest advantage. It is free. All you have to do is get the hardware. You can create an unlimited number of VMs for free. With VMware, you have to purchase licenses for the number of VMs that you want to create. You only pay for their premium support, and even that is optional. I am now learning this product, and we can even do without the support.""I recommend this for any customer wanting to reduce their licensing costs for packaged applications."
