we are evaluating the possibility of moving our oracle CPU based licensing to a user based licensing.
We are now wandering how user shall be counted.
Shall we consider our RDB manager a single user (making this licensing model very interesting) or shall RDB be considered only a proxy for every device/sensor actually connected to the SCADA system which therefore should have their own license (making this licensing model completelly unusable).
100 temerature sensors connected to each PLC
Does this count as:
- one user
- 3 users
- 300 users
Did anyone already investigated this with Oracle?
I do not know how Oracle counts the users, you should possibly get in contact with Oracle for the clarification which license is needed.
