In this case, would there be any impact on the compression ratio as the expansion rack is having high capacity disks.
And, moving partition method would be same as it is for non-exadata database i.e. "alter table <table_name> move partition <partition_name> tablespace <tablespace_name>"Correct, unless it is possible for you to use transportable tablespaces. That would most likely be preferred. If that won't work for your environment, a couple of things to keep in mind, was the compression configured at the tablespace, table, or partition level? You want to make sure your compression intentions are persisted as you move to the new tablespaces.
