Exasol's experts will discuss your requirements with you and provide a comprehensive consultation regarding cluster sizing, setup and integration of


Exasol in your environment.

During the sizing and planning phase, you need to make decisions that have an impact on the performance and scalability of the EXASOL Exasol database, and the effect that hardware or network failures will have on the system and your operational activities. You will need to consider the following:

  • Hardware sizing
    Establish the total disk space, database backup space, and database RAM that you require for your EXASOL Exasol database. Based on this information, you can decide on the hardware configuration you need. 

  • Network planning
    Understand the network requirements for EXASOL Exasol and plan the optimal network based on your requirements. 

  • Business continuity planning
    Devise a plan to recover operational status and data for an EXASOL Exasol database in the case of a hardware or network failure.

To get a better idea of what is involved in sizing and planning, refer to the Planning Guide in our product documentation.
