OCPU per hour

Oracle Enterprise Database cloud pricing is based on the number of enabled OCPUs per instance, dependent on the type and shape of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute selected. Oracle Enterprise Database Service running on virtual machines also requires customers to select Oracle Cloud Infrastructure block storage.

*To make it easier to compare pricing across cloud service providers, Oracle web pages show both vCPU (virtual CPUs) prices and OCPU (Oracle CPU) prices for products with compute-based pricing. The products themselves, provisioning in the portal, billing, etc. continue to use OCPU (Oracle CPU) units. OCPUs represent physical CPU cores. Most CPU architectures, including x86, execute two threads per physical core, so 1 OCPU is the equivalent of 2 vCPUs for x86-based compute. The per-hour OCPU rate customers are billed at is therefore twice the vCPU price since they receive two vCPUs of compute power for each OCPU, unless it’s a sub-core instance such as preemptible instances. Additional details supporting the difference between OCPU vs. vCPU can be accessed here.
