Hello,
Thanks for your answer. The 2 alternatives are from our internal service provider and therefore we have to choose one of them. As the Linux solution is better for our budget we tend to it.

If you're willing to go Oracle, then why not Linux/Oracle?  It doesn't
matter the file size supported by the OS - you can have a terabyte-size
database comprised of 2GB (or less) files.

For that matter, if you're going to go with a commercial OS over Linux, I'd
choose Compaq Tru64 UNIX over HP/UX any day - plus Compaq will have the
inside edge on Oracle since they did the source-code sharing with Oracle.
Their agreement gives Tru64 a significant edge, especially under 9i
clusters, over other UNIXes.

Hello Linuxusers,
we plan to install a SAP BW. 
We are now thinking over 2 alternative solutions:
HP UX/Oracle or Linux/SAPDB. 

I have now heard that one of the major diadvantages of the Linux solution is
a limited database size which is related to the fact that SAP supports at
the moment only 2.2.x kernels with 2GB max Filesize. Does anybody have the
facts ready how large the difference between the 2 solutions is?


Mit freundlichen Grüssen
