Oracle Database Appliance is a pre-built and ready-to-use clustered database system that Oracle has optimized to make Oracle Database Appliance easy to deploy, operate, and manage. By integrating hardware and software, Oracle Database Appliance eliminates the complexities of non-integrated, manually assembled solutions. Oracle Database Appliance reduces deployment time from weeks or months to just a few hours, while preventing configuration and setup errors that often result in sub-optimal, hard-to-manage database environments.


This guide is intended for users who configure Oracle Database Appliance, and who use the unique system maintenance features of Oracle Database Appliance. This guide is also for system administrators, storage administrators, and network administrators, to supplement their understanding of the system requirements as described in the Oracle Database Appliance hardware documentation.
