Itanium's core factor affects Oracle DR licensing

We want to build a DR Site with one processor HP-Itanium server using Oracle 11g Active Data Guard, so what and how many Oracle licenses will we need to procure?  Please note that our main site is a 2-node RAC 11g Database with 4 processors each.

It depends upon the model of the Itanium processor in your server. Any Itanium 93XX processors purchased in servers on or after Dec 1st 2010 utilize a core factor of 1. Any Itanium 93XX or older multi-core processors purchased before Dec. 1st 2010 utilize a core factor of 0.5. Also, note that Oracle has eliminated support of any new Oracle products on the Itanium platform, so the next version of Oracle Database will not run on an Itanium platform.
