While the responses to this thread are well meaning, many of them are based
on the premise that Oracle has the luxury of charging its customers based
on its own interpretation of the agreement they have with their customers
rather than the plain language contract agreed to by both parties, solely
because Oracle has lots of resources and *might* take you to court.
When you sign a deed to a property or a title to a car (both of which are
plain language contracts), is it ok for the seller to come back to you a
couple of years later and demand you pay more money because they decide
that the property or car was worth more than what was agreed to in the
contract? Would you just write a check because the seller is intimidating,
has lots of resources, and threatens to take you to court?
I have an NFS server, install the database binaries on a share, and export
it without mounting restrictions. At this point any server on the network
can mount the share and be contractually required to license that server.
Do I now have to license every server on the network because I might, at
some point in the future, mount that share on that server?
How many times has Oracle taken a customer to court based on a licensing
disagreement for Oracle Database running on Vsphere? I'll give you a hint.
It starts with z, ends with ero and rhymes with zero.

I would still get LMS to legally sign-off on your config; that document
link states very clearly at the bottom "this document is for educational
I've only used Nutanix on a POC and found it to be very good tech, but
very hyped at the moment. Just like the "Cloud Is Better" sales message.

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