Not true. Oracle VM and VMWare are both "soft partitioning", and require licensing of full physical server.

Examples of such [soft] partitioning type include: and Solaris 9 Resource Containers, AIX Workload Manager, HP Process Resource Manager, Affinity Management, Oracle VM, VMware etc. This is not a comprehensive list of all the different types of technologies or resource allocation devices/programs that would fall into the category of Soft Partitioning.
