    Oracle products Licensing Information

    Pratheej

      Hello,

       

      I'm looking to setup Oracle 11g RAC with TimesTen Cache for our product.

       

       

      I have two questions:

       

       

      1. When buying Oracle RAC, is it necessary to purchase Oracle 11g software (Enterprise Edition) separately or is it included with RAC software?

       

       

      2. Is Timesten software included with Oracle 11g or is it necessary to purchase TimesTen software separately?

       

       

      Thanks

          Both RAC and IMDB Cache are *options* to Oracle Database Enterprise Edition. So to have IMDB Cache plus RAC you need to license

           

          Oracle Database Enterprise Edition

          Oracle Database RAC option

          Oracle Database IMDB Cache option

           

          The first two must be licensed for the number of CPUs on the machines where the Oracle database (RAC cluster) will be running. IMDB cache must be licensed for the number of CPUs on the machines where TimesTen will be running (which will not be the Oracle database machines of course).
