Data Guard Licensing

BREAKING NEWS: Oracle does NOT charge you for an advanced feature which is crucial in providing disaster recovery and is a key part of their Maximum Availability Architecture.

Today, I found out that Oracle Data Guard is NOT a cost option in its own right (like RAC, partitioning, etc), but that the Enterprise Edition “includes” it.

There is no entry in the Price List for “Data Guard”.

I could have SWORN I’d seen it before – many times, in fact. I’ve been working with Data Guard or its predecessor for 10 years, so this came as a bit of a surprise.

But then again, so did the fact that Oracle DO charge for the 12c multi-tenancy option.
