Licensing Oracle Clusterware?
Recently I have posted about how to protect a single instance database with Oracle Clusterware and have received a number of comments and requests concerning licensing information for this feature.
So I have just asked Oracle PreSales about this and here we are with the details:
The good news is:
You do not need an additional license to use the Oracle Clusterware, even with single instance database!
But!: the emphasis is on additional!
You need to have at least one license for at least one standard edition database in the cluster if you want to use the clusterware to protect your single instance database!
