|The following important changes have been introduced by Oracle
with reference to the purchase of Sun Microsystems products:
Change to Solaris licensing:
Previously, as long as users restricted themselves to installing
a limited set of publicly available patches, Solaris 10 was
free to use. The licensing conditions have changed and whereas
Solaris 10 can still be downloaded, Solaris is now only
free to use for an evaluation period of 90 days. In addition,
since January 26th, no patches are deemed to be publicly available.
The terms of the license can be viewed on the following link:
All Solaris 10 installations have to be licensed, regardless of
the brand of server and its use. Solaris licensing can be achieved
in two ways:
- Take out a hardware support contract which includes an annual
Solaris subscription and support. This is priced at 12% of the
value of the hardware purchase.
- Purchase an annual Solaris subscription with support. This is
priced at 8% of the value of the hardware purchase.
Users of 3rd party service organisations need to be aware that
such support contracts do not cover Solaris licensing. Users of
3rd party support must still pay the 8% licensing fee. Users of
Solaris on 3rd party hardware such as HP, Dell and IBM must also
subscribe to a fee based Solaris subscription. Such subscriptions
are either available through [DE]SYSTEMS ENGINEERING Ltd. or directly
Previously, Solaris 10 was licensed & supported according to the number
of CPU sockets in the server. In some cases, particularly with 2 socket servers, this could be
a cheaper way of licensing the use of Solaris.
Until April 15th, 2010 the old Solaris subscriptions remain available to quote
via [DE]SYSTEMS ENGINEERING Ltd. If you act quickly, you can still take advantage of this advantageous pricing.
Sun software licensing (other than Solaris):
Oracle recently terminated the annual subscription licensing model
that was used by Sun for such products as Sun Cluster,
identity manager and Grid engine. Subscription licensing has however
been replaced with term licensing.
Term license permit the end user to use a Sun software product for
2, 3, 4 or 5 years. The following discounts apply to term licenses:
Please call +44-208-1233365 or email us should you have any questions or require a quotation.
- 5-year term license = 70% of perpetual license
- 4-year term license = 60% of perpetual license
- 3-year term license = 50% of perpetual license
- 2-year term license = 35% of perpetual license
