Several instances on one database?

Dear All,

just a theoretical question - if I install several SAP instances on one machine on Oracle should I create only one database for all instances or maybe better one database per one instance?

thanks

    You can go either way. Each of them have pros and cons.

    Hi Skiba,

    We have many consolidated systems, running over a physical server. They are running on one database per one instance which means that each SAP system should have has its own database installation. Please note that, if it is a productive environment, you should perform a sizing very carefully, for your system landscape.
