one may want to ask Oracle sales for real world prices and whether this is the right license, which is likely the more interesting question.
Regarding the latter question, there are two products that this seems to fall under, e.g. “Oracle Coherence Standard Edition” and “Oracle Coherence Enterprise Edition”. I have not yet discerned which of these two products would apply for my business purposes, and I wasn’t able to get any kind of clear answer from their sales by phone. However making a guess based on specs for a server with two CPU’s, each with 4 core processors, break down per 1-year license and perpetual license, then the costs are as follows. Note that a second server to complete the cluster utility would result a x’s 2 of the listed cost.
For “1-year” licenses are respectively, $15,456.00 and $36,708.00,
includes 1st yr support $8,096.00 ($1,012.00 x 8), $19,228.00 ($2,403.50 x 8).
For “perpetual” licenses are resp, $22,448.00 and $95,404.00,
includes 1st year support $7,691.20, $17,204.00.
