Oracle published a new MOS announcement saying with the beginning of Oracle Database 184.108.40.206, Standard Edition (SE) and Standard Edition One (SE1) are replaced by Standard Edition 2.
SE2 will support 2 socket systems and is RAC aware. So it seems, that it will be allowed to run on two 2 socket servers (which reflects 4 sockets) and not more.
That would affect customers running SE on 4 socket systems…
And it seems that SEO and SE installation will need to be migrated to SE2, what ever that will mean in $€’s… Costs are expected between SEO and SE, but as usual on the higher end…
Let’s see what will happen….
