It all depends on how much data the users are reading across the net.  With a database that large it might be the network which is more important than the server.

You need to know how many records the average user will access in a day or an hour.

You also need to know the size of the records that the user will access.

Then you can start calculating how much data will travel across the net, how much data will be read from the hard drive, etc.

The answer will vary from a single processor pc with ide hdd to a multiprocessor pc with raid array and a 1Gb fibre backbone, all depending on your numbers.

kneea is correct; no one here can answer without more info on usage.  But the best route is not to ask here; your friendly Oracle rep will have access to benchmarking info that will suggest hardware for given sizes and throughputs of various example databases.  You can use compare their information with your expected needs and get just the right system a lot better than we here at EE could back-seat-driver guess your needs.

Oracle costs a fortune and part of the price is that they have people there to answer questions just like this whether you ask them or here on EE.  I'd advise you to ask them since they're the pros on their software and you're paying for their advice whether you get it or not.

If you have no control over the rest of the network hardware and have just been told to make the server and make it work, it might be time to seek another job. :-)

Question has been abandonded, author has not loged in since the question was asked.

No one has come back to this question, neither questioner nor Experts have reported since my 7 day notification. Therefore I shall examine the question once more and take action.

This question never contained an answer to the question asked. I will now refund the points and accept
