Can anyone tell me how SDE geodatabases are licensed? in a virtual environment?
Let's say I have the following set up:
- a physical server with 100 CPUs hosting several virtual server.
- a virtual Oracle server with 36 CPUs
- on the Oracle server I have 10 instances that leverage SDE, i.e. 10 SDE_HOME locations
Do I need to license 36 CPUs for the virtual server, or a 4-CPU license for each of teh SDE_HOME folders?
What happens if I only have 3 SDE_HOME folders on the machine?
I am trying to better understand this, as we are using ArcGIS Enterprise BASIC to license our SDE and ArcGIS Enterprise ADVANCED for our web servers - I want to make sure i understand how many licenses (packs beginning with 4-CPUs) I really need.
my thanks for any insight
