Flexible Linux subscription levels

Whereas Red Hat enables you to choose the support level with any particular server, Oracle forces you to use one overall support subscription level. So you can't choose a low, basis support level for common servers such as web server and high premium support for your database servers.
This means, that while Oracle's Premium support ($1200 per year, 24x7, per server) is cheaper than Red Hat's Premium support level ($2500 per year, 24x7, per server), choosing that level, means all your 100+ server be charged at the same level, whether they need it or not... Something to keep in mind with large installations.
