The cost of Oracle Enterprise is £24k per core. So a 4 quad-core cpu server
is 16x24 = £384k. You get to multiply the cores by a "fudge factor" of
0.75, which gives £288k.
Standard Edition is £8.5k per cpu, so £34k total. So I don't know where the £150k differential came from either. It's much higher! Received on Mon Aug 18 2008 - 03:07:16 CDT
