Oracle Integration Cloud pricing explained – OCI vs Classic by Robert van Molken

imageLast week at AMIS we had the task of estimating costs of a proposed iPaaS solution for one of our customers that runs on a fully managed cloud. As AMIS is mainly an Oracle partner we looked at how competitive we could make the pricing of the solution using Oracle Cloud compared to other vendors. In this blog I will not go into much details of this vendor compare matrix, as I want to focus on the pricing of Oracle and how it has changed over time. Bottom-line: for our use-case I was positively surprised by the outcome.

Let’s start by looking at the pricing of Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC), the licensing options and estimation rules belonging to each options. Currently the pricing page lists two main service types; Oracle Integration and Integration Classic. The difference between the two is that classic uses the OCPU metric, whereas the updated pricing uses a messages/hour metric. Both options are still available for you to purchase. For each service type you can choose between standard and enterprise package and two payments methods, pay-as-you-go and monthly flex. Optionally you can bring your own (existing on-premises) license to get some mayor price cuts. In the next paragraphs I will go over the differences in more details. Read the complete article here.
