LicenseFortress Announces LicenseFortress Discovery for VMware Cloud on AWS


LicenseFortress Discovery provides customers with automated discovery of Oracle database installation and feature usage including virtualized and/or cloud environments.


July 31, 2018— LicenseFortress, the first and only Oracle license management service that provides indemnification against Oracle audit fees, announced LicenseFortress Discovery is available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. LicenseFortress Discovery enables automated discovery of Oracle database installations and feature usage to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.


Oracle licensing and compliance can be challenging given the lack of clarity around licensing Oracle workloads in today’s virtualized and cloud environments.  LicenseFortress Discovery solves that problem for customers running Oracle workloads on VMware Cloud on AWS.

Built by Oracle and VMware experts, LicenseFortress Discovery is fully-integrated with VMware vSphere.  Discovery of one’s virtualized infrastructure is automatic after the OVA is deployed.  Provide OS and database credentials, and you can get a full inventory of one’s Oracle database environment in just minutes.  Make sure you know where Oracle is running and which features are being used throughout one’s environment.

LicenseFortress Discovery is the same product that the LicenseFortress team uses for our Standard and Premier offerings, including the industry’s only Oracle software compliance and audit protection guarantee.  Download it today for a free 60-day trial.

About LicenseFortress


LicenseFortress was developed in 2016 by Dean Bolton, Founder & Chief Architect at VLSS.  VLSS has spent over 13 years specializing in Oracle and VMware technologies.  LicenseFortress was born after VLSS was approached by VMware about a predicament that many of their customers were facing when trying to license Oracle on VMware. Oracle’s aggressive auditing tactics shed light on the dire situation that most companies face when using Oracle’s products, especially in a cloud environment. While some companies have been deterred from using Oracle, we believe it is a powerful tool for your business when deployed correctly. That’s where LicenseFortress helps you take control of your license investment while removing the threat of being out of compliance. 

LicenseFortress is dedicated to helping Oracle customers understand and implement Oracle’s licensing strategies worldwide. Our goal is to help you optimize your software investment by enhancing your understanding of Oracle’s licensing and pricing practices.
