Oracle Essbase offers compute sizes (OCPUs) to suit different scenarios. The larger the compute size, the greater the processing power. If you're not sure which size to use, contact your sales team to discuss sizing guidelines.
- Users running queries in hybrid mode
- Users running calculations in block storage mode
- Users running reports or queries in aggregate storage cubes
You can configure storage size when you deploy Essbase. Determine the storage size needed, or consult with your sales team to determine that your storage needs are met, based on the number of applications that you plan to deploy.
