Although I only have experience with the HA configurations, I would have to
agree. We've found the ODA patching process, for instance, to be *far* more
fragile and failure-prone than a normal cluster... I'm not joking when I
say that we've been opening a SR for a new and improved patching failure
every single quarter.
The most recent example being that Oracle *forgot to mention* in the
release notes that the 18.7 update requires a full outage of the cluster
stack (due to the disabling of HAIP). After which it took them a couple of
weeks to figure out why our patching resulted in unexpected downtime.
Given that Oracle controls both the hardware and software, I would have
expected the patching process to be relatively bulletproof. Unfortunately
I'm not sure they could have missed the mark further if they tried.

is there a tool/script to do a assessment for the Oracle Database
Appliance? We need help in determining our requirements as to what size of
Database Appliance would be needed.
