We started by assessing the RAC database. We identified quickly that a substantial portion of the council’s resource went towards supporting a poorly-configured physical cluster build. It became clear that the environment should be reconfigured to create a stable underlying database.
Xynomix worked closely with the client’s on-site DBA team and management to re-architect the entire Oracle RAC cluster, including database patching for 9 environments. Our aim was to facilitate effective query performance, eliminate unnecessary downtime and provide a robust, scalable base onto which they could build their systems.
The council made full use of our consultants’ specialist skills, covering Oracle RAC re-configuration/installation, database tuning, full documentation, skills transfer and general troubleshooting.
