Leveraging On-Premises Licenses
The Bring Your Own License (BYOL) option enables you to bring your on-premises Oracle WebLogic Server licenses to Oracle Cloud. BYOL instances are billed at a lower rate than other instances. See Frequently Asked Questions: Oracle BYOL to PaaS. Before you scale up or scale out a BYOL instance, you must have enough WebLogic Server licenses for the additional OCPUs that will be allocated to the instance after it is scaled.
You can leverage your on-premises Oracle Fusion Middleware licenses for Oracle Java Cloud Service. Certified products can be provisioned on your Oracle Java Cloud Service instance after you create it. See Oracle Applications Certified on Oracle Java Cloud Service.
