Licensing costs on X8-2 virtualized/baremetal plateform

Hello,

We would like to deploy ESSBASE with OBIEE and Oracle Databases on new X8-2 server but we think about the best solution between virtualization and baremetal installation with respect to licensing costs.

If Oracle Database is installed on a dedicated vm, are the licensing costs calculated from the number of cores on VM or from the activated cores on full X8-2 server ? In the second case, wouldn't it be better to stay on baremetal installation ?

Thanks for your advices.

Regards,

Mathieu
