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.
When Licensing Oracle on AWS, we want to offer a word of caution. Other licensing firms are suggesting that a recent policy announcement is opening a “wide window” of opportunity. We don’t see it that way at all: caveat emptor or “buyer beware.”
