Offers Flexibility for ISVs Delivering Saas and Cloud Services on Leading Oracle Platform for Saas

Redwood Shores, Calif. – June 30, 2009
News Facts
• Committed to providing the leading technology platform for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud Computing partners, Oracle today launched a new commercial licensing model that enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to purchase license and support for components of the Oracle Platform for SaaS on a monthly basis.
• Instead of making an upfront investment for perpetual licenses, the new monthly licensing model allows SaaS ISVs to scale their investment in Oracle technology with their company growth and end-user demand.
• The new monthly option, called SaaS for ISVs, is available to ISVs interested in delivering a SaaS application in a one-to-many commercial deployment on Oracle® Database, Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Application Server.

Leading Platform for SaaS and Cloud-Based Services
• The Oracle Platform for SaaS includes Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and Oracle VM, a comprehensive, open and integrated set of technologies that allow ISVs to build, deploy and manage SaaS and cloud-based applications.
• The Oracle Platform for SaaS leverages Oracle Grid Computing technologies to enable ISVs to deliver SaaS and cloud-based services to multiple enterprise customers, while delivering on requirements of scalability, high performance, high availability, integration, security and customization.
• ISVs, hosting service providers and system integrators also receive business and technology support via a designated Oracle SaaS Program for partners.

Supporting Quote
• “Oracle has been active in the SaaS market for several years, selling our own SaaS offerings and working closely with an extensive ecosystem of SaaS partners – including ISVs, SIs and Managed Hosting Partners,” said Judson Althoff, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Alliances & Channels at Oracle. “With the new monthly licensing model, not only can ISVs leverage Oracle’s leading platform for SaaS, they can also scale their investment to meet the evolving demands of their business. The combined Oracle Platform for SaaS and licensing options deliver the power and flexibility ISVs need to compete and win in today’s global SaaS marketplace.”
