This model currently supports Oracle Database Standard Edition One.

The Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) is for those who already own Oracle Database licenses, you can use the "BYOL" model to run Oracle deployments and can be run on Amazon RDS under the BYOL model with rates starting at $0.11 per hour.
