First of as I am sure you are aware ( from Steven chans blog) you need to be on R12 before you move to exadata as 11i is not certified for linux x86_64. Since the ebiz tech stack must reside on a non exadata application server there is no difference in the cloning procedure for the techstack. Assuming you use asm and do not use exotic techniques like split mirror san replication during cloning then procedures would not change at all.On Exadata you have to use rman
This is incorrect information. Customers may run 22.214.171.124 on DB 11gR2 on Linux x86-64. Sogeti USA has participated in past presentations to describe their implementation of exactly such an environment. Their application tiers are not running on the database machine, but their database runs on an Exadata Database Machine half rack configuration.
Sogeti migrated from Solaris SPARC to Linux x86-64 and had a smooth transition. The application tiers remained on Solaris SPARC.
Thanks for this info - would you perhaps know someone at this client site who might be willing to talk to me about their experiences with Exadata ? It sounds like they would be able to help me out hugely with real life experience of using Exadata, especially with a small IT team.
