Storage Scaling Considerations for Virtual Machine Databases Using Fast Provisioning


This topic applies only to 1-node virtual machine DB systems.

When you provision a virtual machine DB system using the fast provisioning option, the Available storage (GB) value you specify during provisioning determines the maximum total storage available through scaling. The following table details the maximum storage value available through scaling for each setting offered in the provisioning workflow:

Initial storage specified during provisioning (GB) Maximum storage available through scaling (GB)
256 2560
512 2560
1024 5120
2048 10240
4096 20480
8192 40960
