Great news for customers interested in using Oracle on Azure.
IDG News Service – Oracle’s database, WebLogic application server and Java programming language will soon be generally available on Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud service, marking a major milestone in the high-profile partnership the vendors announced last June.
A general availability date of March 12 has been set for Windows-based software images of the products, which have been in preview, Microsoft said on the Azure website.
While there have been no additional fees for the preview versions, this will change starting March 12. Customers who want to avoid Oracle-related charges for these "license included" virtual images must shut them down before that date, Microsoft said. Windows Server VMs the images run in are charged for separately.
Purely pay-as-you-go customers won’t see much discounting for higher usage of Oracle’s software on Azure.
