After reading through a decent amount of information on Kevin Closson's site, it seems pretty convincing that there is a mismatch between the ability of Exadata's compute nodes to process data at the same rate that the storage nodes can serve up. Obviously that is somewhat dependent on individual workloads. Given that, are sites tending to go with the high capacity drives in the storage nodes?

I know that is a very general question that might get a lot of 'it depends' answers but I'm trying to figure out how to decide between the two without actually knowing what the workload is going to be. I'm just being asked to make a best guess at this point.

Thanks for any comments.
