    Yes I agree with you Michael, Oracle somehow is very confusing in terms of licensing.

    I believe that Oracle Software account manager and the licensing team should give the confirmation in writing first before installing it on the VMware cluster just for the safe side.

    Actually, I do not believe that Oracle licensing is that confusing — what is confusing is Oracle’s selective use of their guidance materials (which the clearly mark as non-contractual) and then their threats that use non-contractual materials to essentially lie to its customers in an effort to extort additional money. The Mars v. Oracle materials are informative and parallel an experience that occurred where I worked.
