I'm not sure if you need to pay a license when you are using ACFS on a database server (in which case you are already paying for the database license). I think this license is only necessary when you are using ACFS on non database servers, to use them as storage servers or something.

But then again, I'm not from Oracle licensing ...

Hi folks,

what's your opinion about the "new" licensing policy ($5000/CPU) regarding ACFS/ADVM, now sold as as "CloudFS"?

Does it keep you from using/testing/trying it? Do you use it anyway?
