It's real... It comes down to the old argument of hard partitions vs soft
partitions. Since your VM can migrate to any of the clusters you have to
license e'rthing. You can talk to your sales rep to get better information.

We are thinking of consolidating our databases onto VM Ware servers. At this
point, we are still in the planning phase. Googling, I found information
stating that if VSPHERE 5.1+ is being used; then you need to license Oracle on
all VM Ware clusters and not just the cluster being dedicated to the databases.
Is this for real? If so, then we will have to reconsider our plans.
