RE: Licensing Oracle SE One on VMWare cluster

Yes, but as Oracle is saying that when you run on VMWare, you may only look at 
the hardware, is it then to be considered as a cluster?

I thought Michael was both clear and correct.
You can't run RAC SE as you describe because the cluster has more than 4
sockets. The cluster is the normal definition of cluster - that is the group
of machines working together to provide services transparently. It most
definitely doesn't refer to individual resources within the cluster - such
as a RAC instance.
