Oracle has a great licensing option for our existing customers called Bring Your Own License, which allows customers to get greatly reduced billing rates for some of our most popular cloud services. In PaaS, many of the Fusion Middleware Licenses can be moved from on-premises use to cloud usage, which allows the customer to continue to glean extreme value from their licensing investments of the past. There is another blog post here that has an FAQ for more details on BYOL:
For Oracle Integration Cloud, this is a great option for our existing SOA Suite and BPM Suite customers. If they have licenses that are either not being used (shelved) or have a ULA or other license type that allows additional usage on demand, these Weblogic Suite, SOA Suite and BPM Suite licenses can be applied to an Oracle Integration Cloud (or SOA Cloud) instance in the Oracle Cloud, and the hourly metering rate is dramatically reduced. Details for which licenses are required can be found in the PaaS and IaaS Universal Credits Service Description document here. Read the complete article here.
