Do you need a customized system sizing for running your Oracle software?
The IBM Oracle International Competency Center develops and maintains sizing tools for Oracle software running on IBM Systems. The tools are updated as new releases of Oracle software are made available. All of the tools now include estimates for IBM Storage components.

A brochure describing our sizing estimation capabilities for Oracle products running on IBM Systems is available here.

New hardware sizing
A planning and sizing questionnaire by Oracle product is available to help you with a new planned implementation or upgrade. The results, which are produced by the IBM Digital Techline center, provide you with the comfort of knowing how much IBM hardware you will need to run your solution reliably.

Upgrade sizing
Are you adding more users? New applications? Upgrading your existing applications? The upgrade sizing process can help you assess the impact of these changes on your hardware infrastructure.

Sizing questionnaires
Sizing questionnaires for the Oracle products shown in the table below, along with complete instructions for using them are available here. The table below shows the products for which IBM can provide sizing estimation, in new implementation and upgrade scenarios.
