Re: Choose database vesrion

Yechiel,

There are a number of changes (usually for the better) with RAC between 9.2 and 10.x - a number of operations are much easier with 10.x. With 10.2 ready to come out any day now, I fear that if you go for 9.2 some of the work you will do will be for nothing, because you will be asked to migrate to 10.2 pretty soon, and probably to go live with 10.2. I don't need to tell you what the standard Oracle support answer will be in 3 months' time if you run into a problem with your 9.2 ... Since you are going for a full Oracle version, can't you convince them to get you a pre-release 10.2 ?

My 0.02 euros.

Hello all

I need some advice on Oracle version to implement on a new system.
We are going with PeopleSoft CRM software and I need to recommend the database version.
This will be heavy duty system that, according to the vendor, will need a cluster of 4 computers, with 4 cpus and 8GB of memory each in two years time.
The test system needs to build yesterday and the system goes live in 2-3 months.


The system will be on Linux RH ES 3.0.

The Oracle versions are RAC 9.2.0.6 or RAC 10.1.0.4.

We are currently on 9.2.0.6 across the board and I do not know 10g.

What would you recommend? Is 10g ready for prime time RAC configuration, or should I use 9.2.0.6?

TIA
