Oracle Support Policy

Oracle Support Policy

Oracle Support Policy

Non technical one this.  Under the new rules, you have to pay 8% of the server price for Solaris support, or 12% for full hw and sw support.  And for non-Oracle servers, it's $1000 per socket per year.

But what happens if you want to run Solaris in a VM?

So far, nobody at our reseller seems to be able to get an answer.  Anyone else doing this?


RE: Oracle Support Policy

Buy your support from elsewhere - ignore Oracle's rules?

The internet - allowing those who don't know what they're talking about to have their say.

RE: Oracle Support Policy

Problem is, the only way you are entitled to updates for Solaris (as far as I know) and other Oracle software, is by taking out support from Oracle (or via a reseller).
