Controlling Software Costs on Exadata [40925]
Take advantage of several techniques to control database software license costs

"Users of Exadata Database Machines can now take advantage of several techniques to control database software license costs including Capacity on Demand (CoD), Elastic Configurations, and Trusted Virtual Machine Partitions.

Exadata Capacity on Demand allows users to disable a subset of the cores on Exadata database servers to reduce licensing requirements. The maximum number of cores that can be disabled on an Exadata X5-2 Database Server is 60%. In other words, with Exadata Capacity on Demand, users only need to license 14 cores per Exadata X5-2 Database Server even though there are 36 physical cores, thus greatly reducing the number of software licenses required per server. Exadata Capacity on Demand allows additional cores to be enabled and licensed as needed. Exadata comes with all the necessary software tools to provision and manage Capacity on Demand..."

Exploring the customer benefits of deploying Oracle Engineered Systems [40807]
Ovum research note

Ovum analyst Roy Illsley has published a research note exploring the customer benefits of deploying Oracle Engineered Systems:

"The market in integrated, or converged, systems is becoming crowded as more and more vendors announce new offerings. Differentiation in this market is difficult to achieve as the integrated approach delivers broadly the same benefits: simplicity of use and deployment, workload-specific optimization, and better control over resources and ability to scale. However, Oracle has produced a range of systems that are unlike others in the integrated systems market, and the term 'engineered systems' describes this differentiation extremely well..."

Controling Software Costs on Exadata [40697]
By Gurmeet Goindi

Gurmeet Goindi blogs, "We recognized the trend of processors getting bigger with every generation. Hence we introduced Capacity on Demand (CoD) licensing and Trusted Partitions on Exadata Database Machines.

Capacity on Demand allows users to disable a subset number of cores on a given database server to reduce licensing requirements, the maximum number of cores that can be disabled on a Exadata X5-2 Database Server is 60%. In other words, with Capacity on Demand, a user only needs to license 14 cores per Exadata X5-2 Database Server even though there are 36 physical cores, thus greatly reducing the number of software licenses required per server. Additional cores can be subsequently enabled and licensed as needed. Exadata comes with all the necessary software tools to provision and manage Capacity on Demand..."
