 8i/Linux hardware recommendations
Hi Again,

I'm looking 8iEE/Linux hardware recommendations.  We plan
to run a medium sized database.  Don't want to spend to
much in the beginning, but need good price/performance.

Thanks,

Will Cl

You get what you pay for...

Gigs of RAM, fast controllers, SCSI et al all make life great (except
the bank balance)...

As a base, I would never go below 256M for ANY 8.0+ database, and by
definition, there will be a minimum number of disks you'll just to keep
your database recoverable eg archives separate from datafiles, possibly
mirrored etc etc...

To follow up on what Conner said :

I would say the minimum for a production database system for the hardware is
are defined by the reliability and storage requirmennts.
The this below are not the  absolute mininum requirtements for running
Oracle, for a development or test database you could do with less, but if
the system has to store some valuable database, I would go for the following
recommendation :

256 M memory
7 SCSI disks (for spreading the IO load)
1 dual channel SCSI controller
1 tape unit for your backup's
1 UPS

Absent from this list is the processor The kind, speed and number of CPU's
you need depend very much on the situation and the software your
planning to run.

Thus first spend you your budget on the items above, and for the rest of
it you can buy your CPU's and maybe some extra memory or disks.
