SE2 released TODAY 1st Sept 2015
Today is a great day for Oracle Standard Edition Community!
The “Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 (=SE2)” has been released, and can now be downloaded.
What’s new with SE2?
- The concepts “Standard Edition (=SE)” and “Standard Edition One (=SE1)” is gone, and the new name is “Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 (=SE2) edition”
- Oracle Database Standard Edition (=SE) Licensed Customers can download the new SE2 without any extra costs
- Standard Edition One (=SE1) Licensed Customers can download the new SE2 with an extra migration fee. Yes, that’s right. Without the extra migration cost, these customers are not allowed to migrate to the SE2.
- The Oracle Database Standard Edition Two (=SE2) will have a restriction of max 2 sockets, and max 16 threads/database. And if hyper thread is in use, there is a max 8 threads/database.
- The RAC feature will be available in the new SE2 release. Please keep in mind the max 2 socket and max 16 cores (hyper thread= max2 socket &max 8 core) rule.
