Oracle Standard Edition on AWS ☁ socket arithmetic

By Franck Pachot

.
Note that I’ve written previously about Oracle Standard Edition 2 licensing before but a few rules change. This is written in May 2020.
TL;DR: 4 vCPU count for 1 socket and 2 sockets count for 1 server wherever hyper-threading is enabled or not.

The SE2 rules

I think the Standard Edition rules are quite clear now: maximum server capacity, cluster limit, minimum NUP, and processor metric. Oracle has them in the Database Licensing guideline.

2 socket capacity per server

Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 may only be licensed on servers that have a maximum capacity of 2 sockets.
