New Updated Rules Make Oracle Cloud Less Expensive than Amazon AWS

On January 23, 2017, Oracle introduced significant updates to their “Licensing Oracle in a Cloud Environment” guidelines document. Miro has been reviewing the document to identify the key changes, and how they relate to current environments and decisions for future environment plans.

As is typically the case with Oracle, the document does not express a clear view of the true comparative impact of the changes they made against the previous guidelines. The changes appear to favor the Oracle Cloud over AWS and Azure environments when calculating the requirements when applying on premise Oracle licenses. With Oracle’s announcement, using the same configuration in other provider’s clouds, or even on premise, can pose a substantial cost increase, both in terms of licensing as well as perpetual support. The impact may be significant; we are working with Oracle to confirm the conclusions we have made. Once confirmed, we will send you details of the changes and their impact for current and future environments.

Miro will be communicating the analysis of the changes this week, so until that time, we highly recommend that you hold off on expanding any use of Azure or AWS until we confirm the impact. Cloud licensing is very complex. Members of the Miro Support Network are encouraged to contact Miro to discuss your current environment, as well as any plans for transitioning to the cloud.
