Oracle offers an optional service that handles the process of installing and configuring your Exadata Database Machine from start to finish. Many companies purchase this service to speed up their implementation time and reduce the complexity of integrating Exadata into their IT infrastructure. If you’re reading this chapter, you may be considering performing the configuration yourself, or perhaps you’re just interested in gaining a better understanding of how it’s done. The process we’ll discuss here closely resembles the installation process Oracle uses largely because we will be using the same utility Oracle uses to configure Exadata. The utility is called OneCommand. It takes site-specific information you provide and performs the entire configuration from network to software to storage. When the process is complete, your Exadata Database Machine will be fully functional, including a starter database.
