RE: "But I don't get why the team told you not yet"
I said, "I asked about hard partitioning at OOW19 and was told not yet".
OOW19 was a few weeks ago, and at that point the official policy in its
current form hadn't been released. I'm under NDA with Oracle, so I get to
hear some things early, but can't say anything. This is one of those
things. At OOW19, the official line was that Oracle didn't recognise KVM
partitioning as hard partitioning, but I knew it was planned once the legal
stuff had been cleared. Since then, the legal stuff has all taken place and
a new policy document has been released, which you saw linked above.
Things are rarely about tech. They are nearly always about politics
I think we are all waiting to see what the recent "VMware Cloud Foundation
on Oracle Cloud" announcement might mean. It would be good if some of the
certification/support/licensing confusion got cleared up along with this
deal, but I'm not holding my breath. :)
