Oracle Price List 2007

Oracle has just published their entire price list, showing all Oracle prices for the plethora of platforms, everything from a mainframe to a Macintosh.

Oracle charges approximately $40k per CPU, a great deal for the worlds most powerful, sophisticated and robust database.  Unlike their competitors who are cagey about publishing their database price lists, Oracle is openly publishing their prices.

Oracle also publishes the prices for their Oracle Applications Modules, and shows the exact per-license pricing for all of their ERP products.

When figuring Oracle prices and total cost of ownership (TCO), you also need to take into-account administrative costs such as Oracle Remote DBA and expert Oracle support services.

Update:  November 1, 2007

Oracle guru Tony Jambu has these interesting observations about Oracle pricing in 2007:

As an example, let’s take a 2 Node RAC cluster consisting of 4 CPUs (ignoring multi cores) per node plus the following options:

·       Real Application Clusters($20,000 per processor)

·       Active Data Guard($5,000 per Processor)

·       Partitioning($10,000 per Processor)

·       Real Application Testing($10,000 per Processor)

·       Advanced Compression($10,000 per Processor)

·       Total Recall($5,000 per Processor)

·       Advanced Security ($10,000 per Processor)

Taking the options into account, the software cost per CPU would be US $110,000.For the2 Node RAC, that would come to be(2 nodes) x (4 CPU) x US$110,000=US$880,000.

The secondary site where your Active Data Guard is being replicated is missing. That would be double your cost to US$1,760,000 (list).

Likewise, adding support of 22 percent brings the figure to US$2,147,200 (list).

You would not pay this price, as discounting has not been applied. Using figures form Oracle’s Store, we get a discounted figure of US$1,610,400.
