Mark, are you sure it's permitted to license SE-1 on a 12-core server? I thought SE1 could only be licensed on a max of 2 cores according to this:

From p.2:

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

From p.3:
"When licensing Oracle programs with Standard Edition One or Standard Edition in the product name, a processor is counted equivalent to a socket"

Maybe I'm misinterpreting it?

Yeah, $10K to license Oracle SE-1 on a 12-core database server

(And you can build a pretty darned powerful database server on SE-1 these days!)
