    High Performance & High Capacity. See page 5.

    There is no VM or simulator for Exadata available to the general public.

    HP (high performance) vs HC (high capacity) refers to the hard disks included in the Exadata storage servers. The high performance drives are 600GB, 15,000RPM SAS disks. The high capacity disks are 2TB, 7,200RPM SAS disks. They both are 6Gb SAS. The HP drives have a much higher MTBF (mean time between failure.

    As for the Exadata simulator, the only that that Oracle makes publicly available is to use RAT (real application testing) to simulate running a workload against Exadata. There are virtual machines, but few have made it outside of the Oracle offices.
