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
