Oracle Features

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

December 26, 2003 (Revised 2/10/11)

Click here for Oracle Prices for Oracle Support:

As a consultant I am constantly inundated with questions like this:

Does Oracle DataGuard cost extra?  How much does Oracle RAC clusters cost? Is Oracle Streams an extra-cost option?  How much does Oracle Performance pack cost?

What are the Oracle prices?

Oracle currently has three main "Editions" of the Oracle database, each with different features and prices:

  • Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) - Oracle EE contains most of the robust features required by large Oracle shops.

  • Oracle Standard Edition (SE) - Oracle SE contains the basic database management functions for small and medium-sized shops.

  • Oracle Standard Edition One (SEO) - Oracle SEO is specially-priced for single CPU servers.

  • Global Price List - For general Oracle pricing, here is the standard Oracle price Guide:

Global Pricing and Licensing Investment Guide

What are the Oracle Features?

Oracle publishes documents describing the Enterprise and Standard Edition offerings.  These documents also list all Oracle extra cost features.  The following links are for the most current version as of the revision date of this page, but similar information exists for previous versions still supported by Oracle:

Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition

Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition

Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition One

Snap decisions regarding making a change to your Oracle Edition should be avoided.  It is critical to get professional guidance on making those kinds of changes.
