Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDoms) recognized as "hard partition" for licensing

Beginning with 2nd of December 2011 Oracle VM Server for SPARC
(a.k.a LDoms) is now recognized as a valid "hard partitioning" 
technology for Oracle software license.

Check this out:

This is applicable to SPARC servers with LDoms. With this change 
it might be worse to review some of your T4 servers and 
SPARC SuperCluster opportunities.

An example:
With 1/2 rack SPARC SuperCluster, if you configure 2 * T4-4 nodes with 50% 
cpu for S10 General Purpose domain (2 sockets, 16 cores), if you 
configure a capped container to have 4 cores * 2 nodes (8 cores in all) 
to run Weblogic, and use the rest of the S10 General Purpose domain for 
non-Oracle apps, then the customer pays for 8 cores for Weblogic (8 
cores * .5 core multiplier * Weblogic $/core).
