This paper will help the reader configure a very large Oracle Server database (VLDB) for high performance and high availability with low maintenance. It describes decisions about database block size, RAID technology and raw devices, redo log files, tablespace partitioning, storage parameters, and rollback segments. This paper explores the technologies and trade-off constraints associated with these issues and presents technically detailed methods for optimizing a configuration within these trade-offs.
