Database Restrictions

Oracle 12c

The embedded Oracle Database license is a restricted license and may only be used or accessed in conjunction with APTARE IT Analytics software.

APTARE IT Analytics software is certified with the Oracle binaries embedded with the software product. Note that the use of the embedded binaries must comply with Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 license requirements, which permits use only on servers (including any virtual server platform) that have a maximum capacity of 2 physical CPU sockets (populated or not). If using a Cloud Provider, Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 may be licensed only on Authorized Cloud Environment instances up to 8 virtual cores. Using non-embedded versions of Oracle (for example, installing in other pre-existing Oracle instances) is not a certified configuration and is not allowed by the license grant.

If explicitly licensed for the APTARE IT Analytics with Partitioning, the embedded Oracle binaries are Oracle Database Enterprise Edition with Partitioning. Note that the use of the embedded binaries must comply with Oracle Database Enterprise Edition with Partitioning. Using non-embedded versions of Oracle (for example, installing in other pre-existing Oracle instances) is not a certified configuration and is not allowed by the license grant.

For APTARE IT Analytics Managed Services Editions, the APTARE embedded Oracle binaries are not provided or licensed with the APTARE IT Analytics software and cannot be used with the Managed Services Editions of APTARE IT Analytics. Managed Services Partners are solely responsible for purchasing and licensing the Oracle database binaries required for the operation of the APTARE IT Analytics Managed Services Editions software.

Oracle 11g and earlier

APTARE IT Analytics is certified with the Oracle Standard Edition binaries. The embedded Oracle Standard Edition database, licensed with a restricted license, comes included in the IT Analytics product. Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition can be licensed only on servers (including any virtual server platform) that have a maximum capacity of 4 CPU sockets (populated or not). If using a Cloud Provider, Oracle Standard Edition may be licensed only on Authorized Cloud Environment instances up to 8 virtual cores. The embedded database can only be accessed and used with APTARE IT Analytics and cannot be accessed through other applications or used as a standalone database. Using non-bundled versions of Oracle or installing in other pre-existing Oracle instances is not a certified configuration and is not allowed, per the standard license grant. Note that the database must comply with the Oracle Standard Edition, not an Enterprise license.

For Managed Services Editions, the APTARE-provided Oracle binaries cannot be used. Managed Services Providers must supply their own licensed Oracle version, which must comply with the Oracle Standard Edition, as stated above.
