    • Database servers (3 units):
      • At least 32 GB of RAM, 64 GB recommended.
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • If a disk array with fiber-channel connectivity is used for data storage, each server should be equipped with a fiber-channel adapter card.
      • At least 500 GB of local storage.
    • OCS servers (3 units):
      • At least 16 GB of RAM, 32 GB recommended.
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • Minimum 500 GB of available disk storage, 1TB is recommended..
    • Web servers (2 units):

When choosing a specific server model, please ask your vendor about its compatibility with Linux compatibility.

  • RAID is recommended in order to improve performance and reliability.
  • Shared disk storage for the Oracle RAC database and other related data can be either direct attached storage, iSCSI, or FC Storage Area Network (SAN). Please see the Oracle Verified configuration on the Oracle website for examples of supported storage solutions. A minimum of 500 GB of free disk space should be available.
