What hardware to practice on?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I want to buy computer hardware/equipment in order to practice my DBA skills, install 12c, Linux, etc. What is a good one to buy? Any suggestions? I currently have nothing.

ideally, a server with multiple CPU’s would help you study parallel operations and data warehouse operations.

As for RAM, it’s cheap to get many gig of storage, and getting SSD would also be useful!

If you want to learn RAC you will need two little servers.  Be careful, they must meet the certification requirements:


Server specs change all the time, and I don’t know of mini server technology!

Sorry that I cannot be more help.

Good luck!
