Oracle makes multi-core CPU license pricing cheaper

Posted on Wednesday, July 20 2005 @ 01:15:40 CEST by

Oracle has changed its software and licensing prices to meet the needs of new multi-core processor systems. Under the new terms Oracle will continue to recognise each core as a separate processor but they will use a new pricing scheme.

Somewhat confusingly Woods explained: "For the purposes of counting the number of processors that require licensing, the number of cores in a multi-core chip shall now be multiplied by a factor of .75. Previously, each core was counted as a full processor."

By way of an example, a four-way dual-core processor server which previously had a list price of $320,000 (4 x 2 [cores] x $40,000) would now have a list licence fee of $240,000 (0.75 x 8 [cores] x $40,000).
