RE: Eyes Wide Open

With ms sql you have mobility for guests in a virtualized setup if you pay for software assurance or you have licensed all the physical cores on a host, you will possibly need to demonstrate from logs etc that the guests have not moved to an unlicensed host & when needs must you can just buy another 4 pack of core licenses?

In the oracle world you would have to pay for every virtual host that the guest will potentially land on unless you are using oracle's own partitioning methods, vmware say this isn't the case but I don't see them offering to pay the legal costs to fight it out.
