We’ve had a short break but now we’re back and completing with our A-Z of Oracle licensing terms, rules, metrics and general information. This time looking at M, N and O. Hopefully you are finding it helpful, but if you need more information please don’t hesitate to contact us by email to email@example.com or check out our online training courses at https://madora.teachable.com/
"An individual authorized by you to use the programs which are installed on a single or multiple server(s), whether or not they are actively using the programs at any given time."
Don’t forget, non-human operated devices are also counted if these access the database.
If you have a server with a small number of users you may want to license by the Named User Plus metric rather than the Processer metric. You still need to calculate the number of licensable processors, then account for the user minimums, see M.
Oracle may let you migrate Named User Plus licences to Processor licences in the future, but it probably won’t be a straightforward process and there are ratios to consider, contact us if you think you may need help.
The Oracle Partner Network is also known as OPN and has different program levels which match the different types of partners and their own requirements.
Oracle has recently upgraded OPN and provides enhanced benefits for partners.
Don’t forget we can help with licensing any of the Oracle products if you are unsure, so don’t hesitate to contact us or look at Foundation and Advanced courses https://madora.teachable.com/
