70) Which option should be implemented?


A customer has three databases named CC. FIN, and DW. The CC database is for their
CallCenter. Even a slight decrease in the response time of the database would mean more people
on hold in their data center. The orders received through the CallCenter are stored in the
Finance (FIN) database. Both databases, CC and FIN, serve as sources for the Data Warehouse
(DW) database. All databases use the same Automatic Storage Management (ASM) diskgroup
and therefore, the same physical disks on Exadata storage. The customer wants to dynamically
control the resources that are available for the CallCenter database because this has direct impact
on their operations?
Which option should be implemented?
A. DBRMon the CC database
B. DBRM on all the databases
