  • 7. Dell Confidential When Completed Hardware Environment Preferences Please complete for all sizing requests This section describes your preferences for configuring the various production and non-production environments. Example 1: Some environments, like production and DR, have dedicated sets of hardware. Some non- production environments may run on the same physical set of hardware. Example 2: Some customers have a QA or staging environment that runs on the same number of servers as production, except without redundant or failover servers. They perform stress testing before promoting updates into production. Example 3: Some environments have only light loads, and therefore can run on the same set of hardware and operating system. Application executables are located in separate directories. Development, Training, Prototype and other environments fit into this category. Usually there is only a skeleton number of servers. Data for the several environments can share storage. No performance testing is done on this hardware. The advantage of configuring the environments like this is to reduce the number of physical boxes, and therefore the cost. Example 4 is similar to Example 3, with the addition of virtualization to separate the environments from each other. Virtualized environments have separate operating systems and application executables, but require dedicated database storage for each environment and additional storage for the guest system boot disks. The only virtualization that Oracle supports is Oracle VM. Site Site 1 2 Please fill in the yellow boxes Non-Production Non-Production Production Note: Switch the Production and DR titles if DR and non- DR #2 #1 production are located at the same site Non-Prod #1 is used when an environment is similar to Prod. Non-Prod #2 is used for smaller or minimal configurations. Number of Non-Production sets of servers and storage with Virtualization Redundant Servers Server Capacity this configuration? What % of main site Production server capacity per set of servers and storage? What % of main site Production database capacity per set of servers and storage? Will this server environment be used for stress testing? N/A N/A N/A Include redundant Other App servers (OBIEE, Hyperion, Agile, Single Signon, etc.) (more than 100% capacity)? Include redundant Web/Application servers (more than 100% capacity)? Include redundant database servers (more than 100% capacity)? Are the Other App servers (OBIEE, Hyperion, Agile, Single Signon, etc.) running under Oracle VM? Are the Web/Application servers running under Oracle VM? Are the database servers running under Oracle VM? 01/18/2010 ©2009 Dell Inc. All Rights Reserved. 7 of 21
