More Mass Market Oracle

Almost exactly one year ago, I wrote about the lack of hosted Oracle database packages.  Since then I haven’t seen much movement on that front, until last week, when STRATO AG, a German hosting company started offering a STRATO Oracle Server hosting package based on Parallels Virtuozzo Containers and Oracle Express Edition.  Here’s the press release.  I’m having a bit of trouble finding the package on the STRATO site, but if it’s true it’s another valuable option out there for ways to increase Oracle usage at the low end (where a lot of innovation takes place).  I’m curious how STRATO is handling the Oracle licensing issues…
