The Oracle Parking Garage
Nathan Biggs (@nathanbiggs), CEO
As we work with our customers to virtualize Oracle on VMware, we hear how Oracle is telling them that they have to license every node in a cluster, or every node accessing common storage, or even every node in the whole enterprise, even though that Oracle workload will never run in those other areas. The comic below is how we view this strategy – Oracle licensing as a parking garage – let us know what you think. (H/T to David Woodard for coming up with the concept).
