Oracle Support Rewards is a program that provides additional value to Oracle’s on-premises software customers who also consume Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) services. Customers earn support rewards based on their consumption of OCI services that are then applied as a form of payment for their Software Update License and Support for Oracle Technology Programs.
Customers using Oracle’s on-premises software become eligible for Oracle Support Rewards when they enter a new Universal Credits order and begin consuming OCI. OCI Pay As You Go customers are not eligible at this time.
Yes. This is available in all regions at launch, except for US Public Sector.
No. Though Oracle Cloud Applications run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Cloud Applications such as Oracle Cloud ERP are not eligible
As OCI services are consumed, customers accrue Support Rewards to apply as a form of payment to any open invoice for on-premises support of Oracle Technology Programs.
This will vary based on the customer scenario. For customers who have a current Unlimited License Agreement (ULA), rewards will accrue at 33% (US$0.33 for each US$1.00 of consumption). For all others, rewards accrue at 25% (US$0.25 for each US$1.00 of consumption).
