Many organizations that run, or plan to run, their Oracle Business Critical Applications on VMware virtualization do not understand that the Oracle contract is agnostic to VMware and how that translates to their infrastructure and purchasing. We invite you to join this session for a frank presentation and conversation about Oracle on VMware licensing by the contract.

This session includes Oracle representatives’ Oracle-on-VMware assertions that:

• Soft-partitioning, a host-level concept, is disallowed

• Soft-partitioning may also be a cluster-level concept

• vSphere sub-cluster licensing is disallowed

• The so-called 10-Day Rule is moot

• Licensing of all SAN or NAS-attached vSphere hosts
is required as of vSphere 5.1

• Enterprise-wide licensing is required as of vSphere 6

We will outline the terms that have improved and gotten worse through the last two decades of contract history, and disclose what relevant case law has been uncovered by House of Brick clients' legal teams.
