Re: "the murky world of licensing and software asset management"

I actually think that SAP has the right idea for how to license databases in the current world of multi-core CPUs - by total memory per server.

Let me use whatever features I want, with as many fast cores as I can throw at it - only with a memory limit based on whatever I've licensed it for. Total memory use is much easier to control than real core / hyperthreaded core / vCPU.
