Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

There should be an option to install the solution for free and just pay for the support. We purchased an annual license and the price could be better.

You don't have to pay a licensing fee. The solution is free to use. It's bound with the hardware.

This is a free product. It doesn't cost anything. What you can purchase is support. If you buy Oracle hardware it's supported free with the hardware. If you're putting it on non-Oracle hardware, that is when you buy the support license, which is also very reasonable. It is $1000 dollars per year, so it's not overly expensive. If you compare what it can do with how much Oracle charges for support, it's more or less free.

Just look into it. You'll find that this is one of the lower-cost solutions out there. There is no OS licensing cost if you use their hardware and purchase hardware maintenance.

It is more expensive, but very complete and worth enacting.

When buying a server from Oracle, all the software is included -- OS, virtualization and patches. There are no hidden costs. We like the long life cycle of Solaris and the SPARC servers. There's no need to replace the hardware every two to three years, and we have a life cycle of five years and more.

I can't talk about prices. Solaris is free for final users, and in the case of OEM licenses, you should visit www.oracle.com.
