I have very little experience with Sybase. We need a database with 8K page size. but our server is already build with 2k page and there are over twenty existing databases running on the server.

I need options on what's the easiest way to get my new database with 8K page size.

Thanks!

Well, I do not have 12.5.1 yet. So I am not sure if you have databases that use different pagesizes in the same server?

Before moving to the cloud, it is important to carefully define your db needs, plan for the migration & understand prod. environment. This wp explains how to define what you need from a cloud provider, plan for the migration & what putting a cloud solution into practice entails.

all other database uses 2k pages, they are updated from old version. I need a new database with 8K page size on the same server. reason being:
1. I need to store records longer then 2K bytes.
2. I'm not sure if the index limit has anything to do withit (I have another Q for that);

So I need to know what's the easiest way of getting the new database on the server.
I appreciate your help so far namasi.

anybody have 12.5 please comment.

You need to create a new server rather than just a database in existing server:
"The logical page size is a server-wide setting; you cannot have databases with varying size logical pages within the same server. All tables are appropriately sized so that the row size does not exceed the current page size of the server. That is, rows cannot span multiple pages."
