Under this model, you continue to use your active Oracle support account and contact Oracle directly for Oracle Database specific service requests. Amazon Web Services and Oracle have multi-vendor support process for cases which require assistance from both organizations.
How does the license option impact DB instance scaling? You may scale your DB instances in accordance with the terms of your Oracle license s.
DB instances running Oracle may be scaled up and down at any point, subject to the prevailing hourly pricing for each DB instance class.
For more information on the scaling implications of reserved DB instances, see the reserved instance page. How does the license option impact version upgrades? The cost of the "Software Update License" is embedded in the hourly price, enabling access to Oracle Database software updates.
Can I change the licensing option for my DB instance e. You cannot go from Enterprise Edition to other editions. To change the edition and retain your data, you should take a snapshot of your running DB instance and then create a new DB instance of the desired edition from that snapshot.

Options and Features Q: Yes, we expect that you will need to use twice as many licenses for Multi-AZ deployments as you would for a corresponding Single-AZ deployment to account for the stand by DB Instance.

by Mike Ault. One big topic I always hear about at conferences and with clients is what RAID is best for Oracle. Some advocate RAID5 (disks not mirrored but striped with parity), others RAID (disks striped then mirrored) or RAID-1 (disks mirrored then striped) while others want RAID5 (disks striped with .
