Optimizing Oracle Costs in the Cloud

Designing a cost effective public cloud solution for Oracle software workloads is a tricky challenge for any organization attempting to juggle both compute costs and the high cost of Oracle licenses. Trying to choose the right platform and architecture to minimize costs requires exploring not just costs for cloud resources, but also related costs such as Oracle licensing and one-time costs such as refactoring and migration. In this paper, House of Brick consultants modeled Oracle licensing costs and compute costs for four hypothetical Oracle workloads based on House of Brick’s experience with common customer workloads.

We highlight key elements of this paper in this summary, including deciding on a provider and designing a solution, modeling Oracle licensing and compute costs, and understanding all the costs involved in running Oracle in the cloud.
