Anyone have any further details about Oracle's announcement about the
availability of docker images for the rdbms as well as multiple other tools?
In particular I have questions around licensing. They're touting that this is
great for developers to build quickly on their workstation, but if things are
still licensed per core, licensing all cores it will possibly run on, it's of
much less utility.
I do think it's fantastic that Oracle is trying to get up to date with modern
deployment practices, getting us freed from the archaic install process. Any
progress is great in my eyes. I'm just looking at it very skeptically before I
start talking about it more with our devs. Is this just a PR spin, trying to
get everyone excited about Oracle cloud?
In case you hadn't seen the announcement:
