Sizing Exadata

  • John Clarke


Prior to making an Exadata investment and periodically after the investment, especially in cases where databases are consolidated on Exadata, it is vital to perform a proper capacity-planning exercise. In our opinion, capacity planning for Oracle databases and Oracle workloads should include the following analysis:
  • Processor requirements planning

  • Oracle database server memory and SGA planning

  • Network planning

  • Disk IOPs planning

  • Disk data bandwidth

  • Storage capacity planning

  • Storage capacity organic growth planning

  • Oracle ASM disk group redundancy planning

  • Disaster recovery planning

  • Backup planning

  • Fast Recovery Area sizing and planning
