Licensing Overview:  Term vs. Perpetual License   

Instructor teaching A perpetual license allows the user to continue to use the software for as long as they continues to comply with the terms of the license agreement. In addition to the perpetual license listed on the price list, Oracle offers 4-year, 2-year, and 1-year term licenses for practically all of its products:

  • 4-year term = 60% of the perpetual license price
  • 2-year term = 35% of the perpetual license price
  • 1-year term = 20% of the perpetual license price

Term license pricing is aimed at companies with small IT budgets, but whose business requires a robust software solution. Customers may extend the term of a one-, two- or four-year term license by purchasing an additional term or perpetual license.

Note: Although the license fee is discounted, annual support for term licenses is the same price as annual support for perpetual licenses.
