HP BL860c Intergrity Blade Servers

Hi,

I have another questions about the blade servers.

The following are the specifications:

HP BLC860c Dual Processor Server Blade
HP Integrity BL869c 2p/4c 1.6/18mb Proc
HP 2GB PC4200 DDR-SDRAM(2x1GB DIMMs)
HP BLc QLogic QMH2462 FC HBA Opt Kit
HP-UX 11i V3 Base OE LTU
HP-UX 11i Integrity 2P/$C Blade PCL LTU

My Question is can i run ORACLE and INFORMIX on the same Production Environment with the above mentioned specs of my HP Servers

Thanks

Blades are NOT workstations. The proper forum is Servers > HP BladeSystem or HP-UX.
I'll ask the moderators to move it to the latter.

>My Question is can I run ORACLE and INFORMIX

2 GB doesn't sound like enough memory.

Ihave to agree 2GB of memory isn't much memory to run oracle. I'm runing Oracle on a B870 with 69GB memory. You will need ot do some reserach.

Sorry,

I think that some filesystem parameters such as direct I/O are available only if you have OnlineJFS, which isn't part of the Base OE. They can be handy if you need to tune for higher performance. I see you'll be on a SAN, also consider that OnlineJFS will be useful if you ever need to increase disk space online. If these are small databases (or you're on raw devices), you probably don't need these features as much.
