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

Oracle also publishes the
prices for their Oracle Applications Modules, and shows the

Oracle guru Tony Jambu has these interesting
observations about Oracle pricing in 2007:
example, let’s take a 2 Node RAC cluster
consisting of 4 CPUs (ignoring multi cores) per
node plus the following options:
Application Clusters($20,000 per processor)
Guard($5,000 per Processor)
Partitioning($10,000 per Processor)
Application Testing($10,000 per Processor)
Compression($10,000 per Processor)
Recall($5,000 per Processor)
Security ($10,000 per Processor)
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
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
