Exadata Software Installation

WithOkcan Yasin Saygili

Oracle understands that providing support to customers in installation, patch, and upgrade is valuable in developing customer relations; thus, an insight into customer needs is important for providing support. Exadata needs to be installed with all its structures from scratch just like other systems; it needs some steps to be performed like the installation of operating systems. Exadata installation can be performed basically in eight steps, but all these steps involve Exadata equipment such as network, operating system, and the database that the customer needs; thus, many features can be changed based on customer preference. Installation of Exadata is not easier than that of other systems because it involves all the hardware and software installed in the systems, and moreover, the method of installation of Exadata is slightly unique. Hardware installation is critical to better understand Exadata.
