Hi everyone, I was wondering if the new vsphere vmotion functionality (I mean, cross-vcenter-vmotion) could be a problem when I need to license an oracle virtual machine. Could someone help me to understand this tricky matter?
Nope, licensing works on compute, whats is currently used and not "what can be used" , the below webinar is useful to watch

I know this is an old thread but we are currently looking at virtualizing Oracle on VMware. While all of the webinars that you post are interesting, I noticed that they are all from a 3rd party point if view. Do you have any documentation that supports "licensing works on compute, whats is currently used and not "what can be used" from Oracle's point of view.
Unfortunately, it's not VMware or Brick House that Oracle is going to come after if I start doing this.
