House of Brick White Paper

Licensing Oracle in the Skytap Cloud – POWER/AIX

Licensing Oracle in the Skytap Cloud – POWER/AIX

This paper provides an overview of licensing Oracle programs using Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) on POWER/AIX VMs in Skytap Cloud. There is much confusion about Oracle licensing, especially in virtualized or cloud environments. While a lot of the discussion and confusion centers around x86 virtualization, the same issues and principles apply to POWER environments. Many of the references in this document point to discussion and legal challenges resulting from running virtualized x86 platforms. The information and precedents established in those forums apply directly to POWER as well.
