Oracle Processor Licensing Program

For Larger Environments With High Numbers of Users or Where Users Cannot Be Easily Identified or Counted

Oracle® Processor Licensing Program is designed for larger environments with high numbers of users or where users cannot be easily identified or counted, as in the case of web-based applications. The Processor metric is also used when it is more cost effective than Named Users Plus licenses. All processors where the Oracle programs are installed and/or running must be licensed. The program is available to companies and government organizations. Dell has access to the hundreds of technology products Oracle licenses.

To qualify for the Processor program, your server environment must meet the following requirements:

Perpetual vs. Term License

Oracle offers both term and perpetual licenses for all its products. A perpetual license is a one-time licenses fee that allows continued use of the software program for as long as the customer complies with all the terms of the license agreement.

A term license is for a specific, limited period of time, during which the user is allowed to access and use the software. At the end of the term, the user must stop using the software or extend the term or purchase new licenses through an agreement with the software vendor. Contact your Dell account manager to discuss the option that works best for your organization.
