Oracle on Tuesday announced the general availability of its flagship database 11g for Linux and outlined its price list.

Oracle's 11g launched a few weeks ago, but the big question mark at the time was the pricing scheme for the database.

As previously noted, Oracle has included a bevy of features that can drive a business case for an upgrade. These features include total recall, advanced compression and application testing. If used properly, each feature can cut storage, disaster recovery and other costs.

But before you build a business case you need the pricing details. Oracle's 11g costs the same as the previous edition and the options are unchanged. New options, however, will cost you more.

Here's a look at the pricing for new options from Oracle's statement:

  • Oracle Real Application Testing will run $10,000 per processor or $200 per named user; 
  • Oracle Advanced Compression is priced at $10,000 per processor or $200 per named user; 
  • Oracle Total Recall runs $5,000 per processor or $100 per named user;
  • And Oracle Active Data Guard runs $5,000 per processor, or $100 per named user.

As for your total upgrade costs the answer boils down to "it depends." Judging from Oracle's price list for the database there are plenty of options (and charges) to choose from. All of Oracle's price lists can be found on the company's site.

  • Wow! The price list sure makes MySQL look good.

    Oracle, IBM, even Microsoft need to look out...
    Basic Logic
    • Just like how the price on a Mack truck makes a Toyota Corolla look good

      Try comparing apples to apples. MySQL and Oracle go after totally different markets.

      • Apples are being compared to Apples!

        We currently use Oracle 10g RAC, we are looking towards dropping it in favor of MySQL. MySQL has come a long way since we first choose Oracle!

        • Try PostgreSQL instead.

          Have you considered PostgreSQL? In my opinion, it's better (true transaction support, etc.), easier to work with, and has a spatial component (through PostGIS) that is comparable to Oracle Spatial; oh, and did I mention that it is also free?
