BYOL options can be very expensive, so be sure to research all of your options before making a decision.

For many businesses, a cloud-based solution like Oracle BYOL makes sense, as it offers scalable, responsive software that is easy to deploy. This approach also protects the company’s investment in Oracle Database licenses. As long as the licenses are valid, BYOL can be used on both IaaS and PaaS instances.

For example, an Oracle Standard Edition CPU license allows for up to four OCPUs per supported processor.

The primary benefit of Oracle BYOL over-License Included is cost-effective CPU usage. By using a Bring Your Own License, you only pay for the CPUs you need and continue to pay the support stream. Additionally, if you ever need to scale up your server’s OCPUs, you can switch to License Included without any downtime. You can also scale up your database using Oracle BYOL if you run out of OCPUs.
