Oracle / VMware Host Affinity Rules
An ITAM Review reader writes:
"VMware does provide a feature called “Host Affinity Rules” which allows us to ensure - VMs running Oracle products - are only running on specified hosts and cannot be moved elsewhere. Does anyone have experience working directly with LMS or during an audit that Oracle has accepted this technology as a means to limit the number of licenses required or do all cores of all servers which potentially could be reached by VMotion must be licensed? We understand that they have published “educational use only” whitepaper suggesting that they do not. Please feedback in case you have experience with this."
