Selecting an Oracle Database Configuration Type

The Advanced Installation option enables you to select an Oracle Database configuration type that best matches your expected workload.

When you choose the Advanced Installation option in Oracle Universal Installer (OUI), then you can select the General Purpose/Transaction Processing, Data Warehouse, or Advanced database configuration type. If you choose the Typical Installation Option, then the database configuration type defaults to General Purpose/Transaction Processing.

If you select Advanced configuration, then you can use Oracle Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) to create the database.

Oracle recommends that you use DBCA to create your database.
