Best Practices for a Data Warehouse on Oracle Database 11g


Companies are recognizing the value of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) that provides a single 360-degree view of the business.

Consequently, each node needs two 2Gbit HBAs: the two HBAs per node can sustain a throughput of about 400MB/s (200MB/s each). In order to sustain a full table scan on all 4 nodes, the throughput requirement for each of the fiber channel switch is about 4 x 200 MB/s = 800 MB/s. It is important to keep in mind that there is only one HBA from each node connected to each switch. On the other side each Read More
