I have been tasked with specing a potential Oracle JDE install and I have a couple of questions:

1) How would you spec the DB servers (Linux)?
a) The DB will be about 900G, growing at about 100G per year.
b) About 500 concurrent users
c) I know I want to use RAC
d) Is ASM a good idea?

2) How many App Servers would you spec for Kernels, and their size.
3) We need to be able to run at least 150 UBEs an our (assorted Finance/OP/MFG jobs), would you spec separate App servers just for UBEs?

If you don't wish to respond publicly, please do so privately.

Getting a 3rd party to spec this isn't an option, and I don't have enough Oracle experience, on JDE, to do a good job on this.

Thanks a bunch.

Tom
