      We've been asked to explore the possibility of dropping Oracle support for a specific application. The plan is to retire this application sometime in the next 18-24 months, but management is looking some money now.

      The support contracts for this environment run over $300k. I spoke to an Oracle contract person about canceling our support. This person mentioned that if we do, we will not be legally able to run any Oracle software on these servers.

      Has anyone come across this ? We've purchased the license so why can't we run the software, but drop the support ?

        Your feedback is appreciated.
