Frequently
Asked Questions:

Q: If I have an SE or SE1 license, can I run
Oracle Database 12c Standard Edition? 
You must
migrate your license to SE2, and then you can run Oracle Database 12c
Standard Edition 2.

Q:
Can I run Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition on an ODA X6-2 S/X6-2M using an
SE One license? 
Yes.   SE is
valid on servers with up to a four sockets, and SE1 is valid servers with up to
two sockets.  ODA X6-2S/X6-2M thus meets the criteria for either SE or SE1
licenses.

Q:
Can I purchase a new license to run Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition? 

Yes, but you must purchase an Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 license, which
will entitle you to run Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition as well as Oracle
Database 12g Standard Edition 2.

Q:
Can I run Oracle Database Standard Edition on ODA X5-2? 
No,
only ODA X6-2S/X6-2M are eligible to run Standard Edition.

Q:
When will 11g Standard Edition be supported on ODA?
Effective
with the 12.1.2.8 update, currently targeted for release on August 29.

Q:
Can I use Capacity on Demand licensing with Standard Edition (SE/SE1/SE2)?
No,
you cannot disable an entire socket in any X86 server. 

Q:
Can I run Oracle Standard Edition Real Application Clusters (SE RAC) on ODA?

No, SE RAC requires an HA configuration like the ODA X5-2, and that platform
is not eligible to run Standard Edition.

    how many instances can I run on a node? Say I have 3 instances on node 1 and 3 instance node 2 as part of a RAC....

    It is not necessarily the number of instances, but the workload and resources that are required for that databases instance. We have customers running 20-50 databases on the ODA X5-2. Thanks.
