as a side note:
it seems that ACFS is free for Oracle binaries, but a CloudFS license is required for any _user data_.
Note 1322405.1 indicates that it's free for MySQL binaries too, but I wonder what this is useful for,
considering that if you use it for the datafiles (I suppose that those will be considered "user data"?),
you need to pay anyway.

You don't have to pay for SQL Loader files, but you have to pay for database external files ...
So, do you have to pay if you want to store external tables on ACFS?
