IBM/DB2


Prisbild enligt uppgifter från återförsäljare i Sverige


DB2 licensieras antingen per processor eller per server och namngivna

användare. IBM/Lotus har ett centralt avtal för skolan, Passport Advantage

academic option som reglerar rabattnivån för
skolan. Processor modellen är

till för Internet och Intranetanvändare, dvs obegränsat antal användare

per processorlicens.

Statskontoret Passport Advantage licensavtal. I priserna ingår ett års

programvaruprenumeration och support. Licenspriserna är en engångsavgift

medans Maintenance är en årlig a

Skillnaden mellan Workgroup Edition och Enterprise Edition ligger i en

begränsning på 8 CPU(nt)/ 4 CPU(unix) för Workgroup Edition. Övrigt

innehåller den samma funktionalitet.


Med andra ord, har ni inte behov idagsläget av att köra databasen på st

CHAPTER 3. PRODUCT PRICING

SUMMARY

DB2 UDB EE (Enterprise Edition) license fees are half Oracle9
i

license fees in

all configurations with external Internet
deployment. In addition, DB2 UDB EE

offers substantial price benefit for all configurations with 25 or more named

users, and it lists at one half of Oracle9
i

for all configurations with more than 50

users per processor. In configurations with 25
-
50 users

per processor, DB2 UDB

EE offers a significant price advantage, while in configurations with fewer than

25 users per processor, DB2 UDB EE lists higher than Oracle9
i
. These

conclusions apply equally well to data warehousing configurations.


Pricing
models for Oracle9
i

and DB2 UDB 7.2 differ somewhat. DB2 UDB uses

a straightforward per
-
processor model, providing an unlimited user license for

both DB2 UDB (DB2 UDB EE) and DB2 UDB Enterprise . Extended Edition

(DB2 UDB EEE) licenses. Oracle9
i.
s

pricing strategy encompasses two models .

an unlimited user model and a named
-
user model.

As a result of this discrepancy between pricing models, DB2 may be more

economical in some cases whereas Oracle9
i

might be more economical in other

cases
. For this reason, we analyze the pricing rules and price points to determine

the actual charges to customers across a range of installation sizes and using the

various pricing options. Resulting price schedules appear in the Appendix and are

summarized in

Exhibit 1 (x
-
axis refers to the number of users).









CONCLUSIONS

A comparison of results reveals the following characteristics for each DBMS

within an OLTP or Internet environment:



Oracle9
i

charges twice as much as DB2 UDB for unlimited
-
u
ser licenses.



Oracle9
i
charges twice as much as DB2 UDB for configurations of 50 named

users per CPU.



DB2 offers a price advantage for all installations that configure more than 25

named users per CPU.



Under its named user policy, Oracle9
i

can offer

a reasonable price for

configurations with up to 25 users per CPU. DB2 configurations with this

number of users may do well with the Workgroup Edition of the DBMS.

Both Oracle and DB2 offer versions for workgroups.

Although the named
-
user opti
on may appear to be an economical solution for

certain CPU
-
intensive applications, where a small number of users require much

CPU power, it appears likely that many customers will opt for the per
-
processor

pricing model in most cases for the follow
ing reasons:



Under the named user pricing option, Oracle9
i
does not distinguish between

full
-
time users and occasionally connected users; customers must count all

users, even those who log on just once or twice a week. For this reason, it is

likely that
most Oracle customers will prefer the per
-
processor, unlimited
-

user pricing.



Under the named user option, customers must notify Oracle as users are

added to the system. It is likely that any given system will grow over time, so

that even systems pu
rchased on a per
-
user basis will revert to per
-
processor

pricing over time.



Internet applications must operate under a per
-
processor license, since users

cannot be named in advance. Intranet applications with a finite number of

known users, ho
wever, can run under Oracle9
i.
s named
-
user pricing, since

the users can be identified.

For data warehousing environments, results are the same as for OLTP or

Internet environments. That is, under the per
-
processor license, Oracle9
i

charges

twice as much as DB2 UDB. Under its named
-
user policy, Oracle9
i

can offer a

modest price for configurations with fewer than 25 users per CPU, an attractive

choice for many data warehousing environments. DB2 offers a price advantage,

however, for all instal
lations that configure more than 25 users per CPU.
