Oracle Blog´s Licensing EBS on Oracle Cloud By Nadia Bendjedou-EBS-Oracle

This article describes how you license Oracle E-Business Suite to run in Oracle Cloud.  The licensing terms depend on your deployment choice, so let's start by revisiting EBS Deployment Options on Oracle Cloud.

Deployment Options

Running Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud requires, at minimum, a subscription to the Oracle Compute Cloud Service (Compute), part of Oracle's Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), to provide the resources you need. You can then choose to run EBS on a single node (left-hand figure below) or multiple nodes (middle figure below).  In these two scenarios, your application and database tiers both run on IaaS.

An alternative is to run your EBS database on Oracle's Database Cloud Service (DBCS) or Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service (Exadata CS), by subscribing to whichever of these best meets your needs. This is shown in the right-hand figure below.


Single node on Compute


Multiple nodes on Compute


Multiple nodes on Compute + Database Cloud Service (DBCS or Exadata CS)
  • Provides an all-in-one option
  • Suitable for demonstration, sandbox, and training environments
  • Faciliates exploration of new functionality
    • Supports scale-out of application tier
    • Suitable for development, testing, or production environments
    • Supports full-scale deployment
      • Supports scale-out of application and database tiers
      • Leverages DBCS or Exadata CS to improve manageability and support Oracle RAC
      • Stores your data in Oracle Database Cloud Service (DBCS or Exadata CS)

      Licensing Models

      Oracle E-Business Suite is licensed by user per product or module, and EBS licenses are required for production use only (whether in the cloud or on-premises). Oracle E-Business Suite comes with restricted-use Database Enterprise Edition (DB EE) and Application Server Enterprise Edition (AS EE) licenses. Full licenses for DB EE and AS EE are required to run EBS with customizations.

      Oracle Compute Cloud Service follows the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) licensing model. This means that if you choose to run EBS on Compute only (as seen in the left-hand and middle figures above), you can use your existing EBS, Database and Application Server licenses.

      If you choose to run your EBS database on DBCS or on Exadata CS (as shown in the right-hand figure above), you subscribe to the database service separately. When the EBS database runs on DBCS, EBS today requires either the DBCS Enterprise Edition - High Performance option or DBCS Enterprise Edition - Extreme Performance option. On-premises database licenses cannot be exchanged for DBCS and Exadata CS licenses, but you may contact your sales representative for information about available discounts.

      The following table summarizes licensing information for the three main categories of EBS components (EBS, FMW and Database), based on the following available deployment options: on-premises, IaaS only, IaaS + DBCS, or IaaS + ExaCS. It also distinguishes between a lift and shift migration, and a new cloud implementation.
