Frequently Asked Questions: Oracle BYOL to PaaS

  • What is Oracle BYOL?

    BYOL stands for “bring your own license.” Previously, you could bring your own licenses to Oracle IaaS, but to get the benefits of PaaS automation, you couldn’t leverage existing licenses. This has been changed. We’re offering Oracle BYOL to PaaS, enabling our customers to leverage their investment in existing on-premises licenses in their journey to the cloud.

    Oracle’s current PaaS offering is “license-included PaaS.” It includes:

    • Compute and compute support
    • Automation
    • License entitlement and license support

    Oracle BYOL to PaaS includes:

    • Compute and compute support
    • Automation

    Customers bring their on-premises license entitlement and get license support via their existing on-premises support contract.

    As customers leverage their existing on-premises license entitlement, they can move to the cloud at a lower cost.

  • If I want to move a license entitlement to the cloud, can I bring the entitlement back to on-premises?

    Yes. You have complete license mobility between on-premises and the public cloud and Oracle Cloud at Customer.

  • How are on-premises license entitlements mapped to Oracle Cloud under Oracle BYOL?

    The mapping rules are defined in the Oracle PaaS and IaaS Universal Credits Service Description document.

    At a high level, one Oracle Processor License maps to two OCPUs. Refer to the above document for more details.

  • Do all existing license-included PaaS offerings have an Oracle BYOL to PaaS counterpart?

    No. There are cloud-only services that have no on-premises analog. Some examples of this are: Oracle Mobile Cloud, Oracle API Platform Cloud Service, Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service, and Oracle Visual Builder Cloud Service.

    These services are only available as license-included PaaS, as there are no on-premises license entitlements to bring to the cloud.

  • How is Oracle BYOL to PaaS impacted by the new Oracle UC model?

    Customers can use their credits to provision and burn down credits against license-included PaaS services or Oracle BYOL to PaaS services.

  • Do customers have to continue to pay their annual support fees for on-premises licenses they BYOL to PaaS?

    Yes.

  • Are on-premises license entitlements for Oracle Database Standard Edition, Oracle Database Database Standard Edition 1, and Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 mapped to Oracle Database Standard Edition Cloud Service?

    Yes.

  • Can a customer mix license-included PaaS and Oracle BYOL to PaaS in the same provisioned instance?

    No, the two cannot be mixed in the same instance.

  • With license-included PaaS, customers can simply scale up or down and are charged hourly for “renting” the service from Oracle. How does scaling working for Oracle BYOL to PaaS?

    The same capability exists with one significant difference. With Oracle BYOL to PaaS, customers must bring a license entitlement from on-premises to the cloud. So if a customer has many unused licenses available on-premises, they can scale up or down to match demand, provided they have the appropriate number of BYOLed license entitlements.

  • Can’t a customer do Oracle BYOL to PaaS for the steady-state workload and then scale up using license-included PaaS?

    It depends on the architecture. If the customer can scale horizontally by adding new instances, then they can start new instances with license-included PaaS.

    However in many situations, they need to scale an instance vertically by adding more cores to the instance—the database in particular. In this case, you can’t mix Oracle BYOL to PaaS with license-included PaaS in the same instance. They must either be all Oracle BYOL to PaaS cores, or license-included cores.

  • Given that we’ve ensured that every customer using Oracle Database license-included PaaS has access to Diagnostics Pack, Tuning Pack, Data Masking and Subsetting Pack, and Real Application Testing, are we extending the same experience to Oracle BYOL customers?

    Yes. When a customer brings an Oracle Database Enterprise Edition license entitlement to Oracle PaaS, they are granted the rights to use Diagnostics Pack, Tuning Pack, Data Masking and Subsetting Pack, and Real Application Testing without having on-premises license entitlements for those database options.

  • Are Diagnostics Pack, Tuning Pack, Data Masking and Subsetting Pack, and Real Application Testing included for customers who BYOL to IaaS?

    No, these entitlements are only granted to customers who BYOL to PaaS.

  • Can Oracle Unlimited License Agreement customers certify licenses BYOLed to Oracle Cloud?

    No.
