I have a large (10TB) database on Windows 8.1. Need to upgrade 12.1 to 12.2. I have never done an Oracle upgrade, so desire a DBA who has done it and can guide me and assist with questions and help make it smooth.
Using ASM. There is one very large text index, which I would prefer to not have to recreate (it takes 3 weeks), but if needed it's OK to drop/recreate. Prefer to not duplicate the database (don't recreate all objects), but to upgrade it in place. I have a 4 day weekend coming up with Thanksgiving holiday in the US to do it when no production access is needed. Worst case I drop 12.1, create 12.2, and import the database. But prefer to upgrade in place if possible.
I don't know how long it will take, so prefer an hourly rate. The $750-$1,500 total I put on the project is a worst case scenario assuming you do most all the work, or have to get involved over multiple days. My expectation is that I will do most of the upgrade and have you assist me along the way with questions, etc., as needed.
So, please provide an hourly rate. That's my preference.
If you are confident in your ability and time to do the upgrade remotely for a fixed price with you doing a majority of the work, then go ahead and provide a fixed price.
