Re: Perl CGI Scripts -> Oracle Web Server (fwd)



Paul:

I passed on your note to my manager and am forwarding it to the list for 
remarks. Please note, we are an educational institution and benefit from 
educational pricing. But still the differential is quite extreme.


Kind regards,
David.

David, 

We are just about to sign the contract for the Oracle Web Server option, 
its under $2000 Canadian.  I think Oracle is pricing this product very 
competitively in order to gain inroad into the Web market.  The $50,000 
price tag seems to be way out of wag, could that include the price for 
upgrading hardware too?
