Red Hat JBoss Data Grid Comparison Calculator

Use this calculator to compare the ongoing subscription costs of Red Hat® JBoss® Data Grid to the upfront license and ongoing support and maintenance costs of Oracle WebLogic Coherence and IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale.

Pricing models for Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere are highly dependent on both the number of processor cores as well as the type of processor core in use. Please review instructions for each comparison to ensure that the correct Oracle Core Factors and IBM Processor Value Units (PVUs) are being used.

Using the calculator

Input all variables in white cells. Mouse over the marked rows for more information. Below the calculator are charts graphically displaying the Red Hat JBoss Data Grid savings.
