4 Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software

The Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software is the unique set of software components, tools, and documentation required to make the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Hardware functional and usable as a platform for Oracle's Fusion Middleware and business applications.

The Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software license also grants the right to use all supported features of the software and firmware installed on the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Hardware by Oracle at the time of manufacture.

There are no supported means of operating the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Hardware that does not require use of the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software, nor are there any supported approaches to "hard partitioning" that would allow customers to avoid licensing all of the physical processors for a given Exalogic Elastic Cloud Hardware compute node (server) that is powered on.

The principal components of the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software are as follows:
