  • Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition is available on single or clustered servers with a maximum capacity of four sockets in total. It includes Oracle Real Application Clusters as a standard feature at no additional cost.
  • Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition is available on single and clustered servers with no socket limitation. It provides efficient, reliable and secure data management for mission-critical transactional applications, query-intensive data warehouses, and mixed workloads.

All editions of Oracle Database 11g are built using the same reliable database engine architecture and are completely compatible with each other. Theyre available on a choice of operating systems and include a common set of application development tools and programming interfaces.
