thanks for posting this message. I told my customers that same thing quite
often. However in the end they were afraid. Good to see somebody else to say

Oracle database on VM Ware
Here's the thing to consider (that I replied to Jeffrey off-list about).
1. If you license Oracle correctly/tightly on VMWare (not an entire farm
opposed to what Oracle tries to tell you), then you are going to be in for a
fight - Oracle will threaten you, potentially take you to court (and likely
lose) but they're betting you'll cave in before it makes it to court. The
problem is, the stress involved - keeping your companies legal team involved,
dealing with high pressure tactics from Oracle and whatever else comes along.
So, if a company is willing to "go to the mattresses" against Oracle and their
stance of running on VMWare it can be done, but the tradeoff is significant and
the legal costs could be high.
Just my $0.02 (if that)

Here is a discussion of the topic. As I read the conclusion, if Oracle cannot
physically run on a server, you dont need to license it.

Yes it does. The Nutanix
documentation tells you to get your situation confirmed with
legal and they explicitly (and sensibly) avoid confirming any
That is true, but Nutanix has a deal with Oracle:
The installation ends up being much cheaper, which is the goal.
