In almost all of the Exadata migration projects I've been part of, the client sees immediate speedup & performance increase when testing their workload on Exadata (of course, we’ve made sure that we do plan & execute the tasks right). However, my performance geek’s nature usually doesn’t allow to stop there and leave the client with just 2x or 3x performance increase. For data warehousing and reporting workloads, Exadata can do much better than just 2-3x performance increase!
This is why I will write this article series about Getting the Most out of your Exadata Performance. I will write a bunch of random articles, based on my experience and lessons learned – and some day I may consolidate it all into a more formal paper.
So, here's the first article (PDF format).
