I’m working with the following combination for an internal Oracle Apex deployment that will have a limited number of users.
- Windows 2008 64 bit on VMWare
- Oracle Database 11.2.0 R2 64 bit
- Oracle Apex 3.2.1.00.12
- Oracle HTTP Server 184.108.40.206
Response time thus far is fine. Deploying on VM saves money on hardware and should be able to meet performance requirements for the intended usage of this system.
