JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform Cost Comparison Calculator
This calculator compares the ongoing subscription costs of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform (SOA-P) to the upfront license and ongoing support/maintenance costs of IBM WebSphere ESB and Oracle SOA Suite.
Pricing models for IBM WebSphere and Oracle WebLogic are highly dependent on both the number of processor cores as well as the type of processor core in use. Please review the instructions for each comparison to ensure the correct IBM Processor Value Units (PVUs) and Oracle Core Factors are being used. To calculate license and support costs for IBM WebSphere you must know the number of CPUs, plus the brand of server, chip type, and number of cores per chip that you plan to deploy upon.
Using the calculator
Input all variables in white cells. Mouse over the marked rows for more information. See charts graphically displaying the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform savings below the calculator.
The total number of cores cannot exceed 1024. Results below may not be accurate.
* The default is set for the new Nehalem chips (70 PVUs). When customizing, please be specific as to whether or not they are Nehelem chips and adjust accordingly.
