How many Oracle licenses is needed to run SA

HP Server Automation continue to use Oracle as its database, but customers will only be able to
purchase Oracle licenses and support directly from Oracle.

 

But the questions is how many Oracle licenses is required for SA to work normally?

Re: How many Oracle licenses is needed to run SA

We use oracle for the following things:

- 1 for each core. So a 2 core mesh would need 2x oracle. A single core setup would only need 1x Oracle.
- If you have additional slices for each core these do not have oracle, so 0x oracle for them.
- 1 for BSA Essentials product. This is purely for reporting and it is optional.

However we have recently launched Server Automation Standard (Virtual Appliance) . The Standard version is a cut down appliance version of Server Automation Enterprise, which runs on VMWare and uses the postgresql database. This allows customers not to use Oracle.

Filippos,

 

What's 1 oracle license stands for, is that one named user license or one CPU-based license?

 

 

Thanks,
