You pay as you go, and you don't pay for services that you don't use. If you feel that you need additional resources then you can increase them and pay only for them. There is no need to worry about paying for something that you don't use. Licensing depends also on how you want to store your data. For example, some clients use a hybrid approach, where some data is stored on the cloud and other data is stored on-premises. Overall, I think that the price is quite cheap, and they gave me a $300 credit.

I don't handle the billing or licensing aspect of the solution. I don't have any insights into the cost of the product or how many licenses the company holds.

Licensing costs are typically arranged by Oracle CPU. You pay for the access and then you can scale. If you have a fairly intensive database activity, you'd scale up by CPU, and you're paying by the CPU and the uptime. So there's a marginal uptime cost. If your operations are only running 12 hours a day, you can put your database offline after that and reduce costs. If you had multiple databases supporting the same environment, let's say a development, a test, and a production, you could just turn off the development and the test when you're not fixing anything or developing, and that would reduce your costs. There is also a free version of ADW that can be accessed if you create a cloud account. I think it allows for 20MB of space that is free.

I would recommend to fully utilize Oracle's trial service. It's a good way to try it out first.

The cost is perfect with Oracle Universal credit.

The solution needs to offer support for the R language. It doesn't exist and it really is something they should have. Sometimes the solution works differently between the cloud and on-premises. It needs to be more consistent and predictable. There isn't support for data migrations. It would be helpful to have more documentation or information about this process. It's not easy for us to find online or on their website.

An ADB serverless service provides no control over storage, host, and facilities. One of the major problem is creating custom tablespace. The ADB serverless option doesn't support custom tablespace creation, which could cause issues during on-premise database migration that requires specifically named tablespace. There should be an option to create customized tablespace. There are many data types and parameters which are not supported. That should be improved a bit so many customers can adopt.
