Factors Affecting Cost of Oracle License

Factors Affecting Cost of Oracle License

The cost of Oracle license varies depending on the number of users and your preference, or that of your company.

The two main options that Oracle offers are the Processor metric and Named User Plus metric. The main difference of the two is that, under processor metric, there is no limit as to the number of users that can access the programs, whereas, under the Named User Plus, you are limited to a number of users that your license allows.

When your company is constantly expanding, where the number of users can increase significantly anytime, the Processor metric seems to be a wiser choice. While the Named User Plus is more cost effective when there is a relatively small number of users.

Other types of Oracle licensing are the Unlimited License agreement, Standard Edition Per-socket licensing, Enterprise Edition Per-core licensing, Concurrent Device licenses, Application Specific Full Use Licensing, and Embedded Software License.
