Redis Pulls Back on Open Source Licensing, Citing Stingy Cloud Services
“The modules in question are used to help create managed services on top of Redis, namely RediSearch, Redis Graph, ReJSON, Redis-ML, and Rebloom. Licensed under Apache 2.0 modified with Commons Clause, these can still be freely used in any application, though they can’t be used in a commercial Redis-based offering. For that, you will have to call Redis Labs and work out a paid licensing arrangement.”

Oracle Gets Cloudy: What’s Behind Their Change in Financial Reporting?
“Oracle did announce during the earnings call that cloud revenue was $1.7B for the quarter, but failed to break that out between SaaS and the combined IaaS and PaaS, as was previously reported. Also, with BYOL, it is impossible to know if customers are using those licenses in the cloud or on-prem, thereby obfuscating their cloud performance, which is now the number one factor in determining Oracle’s success against its peers. Oracle is claiming customers are deploying BYOL licenses in the cloud immediately, or have plans to do so in the near future, but it is impossible to know for sure.”

Vendors switching from on-prem to public cloud is hella hard, often deadly.

Why software giants are failing
Should have done cloud earlier.

There’s another angle: when and how does a product manager call/predict a huge shift like traditional, on-premises software to “cloud”?

Coding Horror: Oh, You Wanted "Awesome" Edition

All-Access - Embarcadero Technologies
All you can eat licensing for Embarcadero/CodeGear tools. I think it's a good move.

Oracle and Cloud Computing. Funny.
"Oracle seemed to have missed one of the main points of cloud computing -- that it's an on-demand approach and that includes software licensing costs. In case you didn't notice, Oracle is not offering pay-per-use pricing for the cloud. All they are saying is that you can use the regular perpetual, upfront, fully-paid software license on EC2. Big Whoop."

If Not Vista Enterprise, Then What?
Looks like Windows licensing has turned into a game of licensing wizardary, eh? Just like with mainframes. Exciting!
