    Feasibility of moving exadata databases to multitenant architecture


      DB version :

      Exadata version : X2-2 (Solaris, Kernel version: 5.11)


      I am not an expert on Exadata.


      In my shop, we have a 2-node exadata cluster which has twelve standalone databases running. Out of 12, five of them have OLTP workloads and the remaining 7 have hybrid (DSS/Batch + OLTP) workloads.

      To avoid the wastage of resources (CPU, Memory) , wouldn't it be better to convert all these standalone databases to 19c multitenant architecture and run in the same exadata (X2-2) hardware ? i.e run these databases as PDBs in the same hardware.
