Oracle 11g standard edition v.s. enterprise edition for LN ERP
Baan: Infor10 ERP
DB: Oracle 11gR2
OS: RHEL 6.0
We are running our production BaanIVc4 (Informix) and planning to upgrade to LN ERP, a full-blown LN ERP with 100 users license. We are thinking of moving away from Informix to Oracle 11g database. To save the cost we would like to select standard edition of Oracle 11g database. From sizing model and capacity planning, the Oracle 11g standard edition has enough power to support our production. If you have any experience with Oracle 11g database standard edition, please let us know your thoughts.
Our concerns are that the standard edition is lacking of many features. For example in the Manageability area:
Oracle Change Management Pack
Oracle Configuration Management Pack
Oracle Diagnostic Pack
Oracle Tuning Pack
Oracle Provisioning and Patch Automation Pack
Do we really need the Enterprise edition of Oracle 11g for LN ERP? Which third party tools can we use to replace those manageability features above? Please let us know the pros and cons if we select Oracle 11g standard edition.
