Why Oracle Database Standard Edition 2?Oracle Database Standard Edition 2(SE2)streamlines the existing Standard Edition(SE)and Standard Edition One(SE1)offerings into a single offering going forward that continues to provide an affordable enterprise class database for SMB customers. When SE was first introduced single anddual core CPUs were the norm. Today, we have 18 core CPUs and 32 core CPUs are around the corner. Not to mention that per core performance has
increased greatly. This offering takes into account the ongoing hardware trend of increasing cores per socket. This trend has essentially made 4 socketservers obsolete. Therefore, SE2 aligns usbetter with what customers are using
Cost and Scalability Advantage: Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 can be licensed on servers with a maximum of 2 sockets . However, the core counts per 2-socket server can increase over time without impacting customer license obligation. With Oracle SE2, customer license costs remain the same regardless of the number of cores in the socket
