Making the Business Case for Oracle VM versus VMware

IT shops that run Oracle on VMware have learned the hard way, via Oracle license audits with large true-up bills, that Oracle on VMware is cost prohibitive. With VMware, the only Oracle licensing option is soft partitioning. Soft partitioning requires each and every CPU where an Oracle product can run to be licensed.
 
Oracle VM allows our customers to reduce their Oracle licensing costs up to 90% compared to VMware. With Oracle VM, our customers only license the CPU cores they need without having to overprovision Oracle licenses. This is refereed to as hard partitioning.
