This section provides information about the storage volumes and file system layout of a newly created database deployment on Oracle Database Cloud Service.

Compute Cloud Service Storage Volumes

When a Database Cloud Service deployment is created using the Oracle Database Cloud Service service level, the following storage volumes are created.

Storage Volume Description
bits 60 GB volume completely allocated to /u01 on the virtual machine.
boot 32 GB volume allocated to the following file system mounts on the virtual machine:
/ (root)
/boot
swap space
data GB size equal to the value provided in the Usable Data Storage field during the database deployment creation process, with a minimum of 15 GB. This volume is completely allocated to /u02on the virtual machine.
fra GB size depends on the choice of Backup Destination during the database deployment creation process:
Both Cloud Storage and Local Storage: GB size equal to 1.7 times the size of the datavolume.
Cloud Storage Only or None: GB size equal to 0.1 times the size of the data volume, with a minimum of 7 GB
This volume is completely allocated to /u03 on the virtual machine.
redo 10 GB volume completely allocated to /u04 on the virtual machine.

File System Layout

When a database deployment is created using the Oracle Database Cloud Service service level, Oracle Cloud Service storage volumes are created and allocated as follows.

File System Mount Description
swap Swap space; 4 GB allocated from the boot Compute Cloud storage volume.
/ (root) Operating system files; 25.5 GB allocated from the boot Compute Cloud storage volume.
/boot Operating system kernel; 500 MB allocated from the boot Compute Cloud storage volume.
/u01 Oracle product software; the entire bits Compute Cloud storage volume.
/u02 Oracle Database data storage; the entire data Compute Cloud storage volume.
/u03 Database backup storage; the entire fra Compute Cloud storage volume.
/u04 Database redo logs; the entire redo Compute Cloud storage volume.
