We are in the process of moving off of HPUX 11.23 w/10g (ERP6) to RedHat 6.x and 11g w/EHP4 running in a VMware environment.  Used Shareplex for the SAP move (10g -to- 11g) and XTTS for the non-SAP databases.

Hello all,
We currently have  the following configuration for running SAP in house
(IA = HP Itanium 64bit )
   ECC6.0 environment  
1.       Hardware – IA64bit
2.       Database version – Oracle 10g
3.       ABAP version - ERP 6.0  EHP4
4.       Red Hat Linux EL5
   Netweaver (BW/BI) environment 
1.       Hardware – IA64 bit
2.       Database version – Oracle 10g
3.       ABAP version – Netweaver 7.0 EHP1
4.       Red Hat Linux EL5
Our investigations have revealed that SAP will not be certifying/upgrading  Oracle 11g and above on HP IA platform for Red Hat Linux just for  HP-UX.
1.       Are there any companies with a similar configuration as we have above? 
2.       If so, what are the decisions you are making with respect to upgrading?  - We have just under two (2) years before our upgrade cycle?
3.       If considering or if you have made the transition to Inter X86-64bit , how was that transition?
4.       Is it a good time to consider moving to an alternate database as well?
