@stacksofplates anyone or their cousin can register as a developer and use the system for production.
Here's my personal account.
Yes I also have a developer account. The 16 production workloads are for the cloud subscription. As the article mentioned.
I think you're believing that this is tied to Redhat's Cloud offering, it's not. It's tied to your account with redhat, for sure. (So you can download it). But you can download and run this anywhere.
At least that's how I'm reading this.
You're correct. I just read that and came to post. The wording in the other article was confusing and made it seem like they needed to be deployed on a supported cloud provider.
However, I still don't think it's worth going through the trouble to download from Red Hat vs just downloading Oracle and not needing to do anything.
One thing I wonder is if you have a paid subscription for something like Gluster, Ceph, Satellite (not that you would for 16 servers but I mean any subscription) do you now have to pay for the host it's on? Do the terms of any of those pieces of software require the systems they're on to have a valid license?
Just thinking about that took more time than downloading the Oracle ISO.
