We pay for a license on a yearly basis. It's not an overly expensive product. It's affordable.

This is an open-source product that can be used free of charge.

We use Oracle Linux to test our software, and we also recommend Oracle Linux to our customers. We also recommend the purchasing of a license to activate the product. If our customers want to install Oracle Linux on multiple servers, perhaps Oracle could offer some good discounts, but these would need to be negotiated.

The licensing cost is fairly small. It's pretty much in line with Red Hat licenses. I cannot recall the actual pricing, however, it's my understanding that it's just a few hundred dollars for a CPU core per year. I would just say it's fairly reasonable and low. Oracle Linux subscriptions can actually come free if they're purchased with other products.

Nowadays, Oracle is very open toward price negotiation; they negotiate well with their clients.

As per above, pay attention to how Oracle license their products and make sure you are clear as to the implications of choosing products which can have a significant impact on license cost and supportability.
