Oracle Database on Amazon EC2
Oracle customers can now run Oracle software on Amazon EC2 using existing or new licenses. For database customers, Oracle provides pre-packaged Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) containing Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 and Oracle Database 11g which are supported by Oracle and Amazon Premium Support. For creating new databases, Oracle provides scripts that will have a database ready for use in just a few minutes. Backing up databases to Amazon S3 is fast and secure with the Oracle Secure Backup Cloud module. The Cloud module includes special licensing for encryption and compression that allow these features to be used without requiring separate licenses for the Advanced Security and Advanced Compression options.
