HP Itanium Redhat and Oracle

Hi,

we already changed our BW and CRM environment from HP IA64 11.23/Oracle
11g to Linux RedHat X86 64/Oracle 11g. We used the standard
heterogeneous system copy without remarkable problems. The result is
lower costs and better performance.

The ERP change will take place next year. One thing you might think
about, is the support. Best if everything is in one hand and that's
maybe not so easy with Linux.

In my view it's a 'good' time to change the database too but not
everything in one step. I think Oracle is a very good database and
always worked for us but it's horrible expensive. That's why every few
months the suits appear. The best alternative in this case might be
Sybase but as administrator it's not really easy to set aside many years
of oracle experience.

Ulli
