This should answer your question:
BTW, there is a difference between Exadata Smart Flash Cache and Database Smart Flash Cache.
If you are buying exadata, exadata storage server and exadata database server is preinstalled with Oracle linux or sun solaris operating system.
If you are buying exadata, you also buying exatata smart flash cache function with exadata.
So, RHEL is not related with exadata smart flash cache.
If your application server is using RHEL or any other OS, it is not matter to use exadata smart flash cache, cause exadata server is different servrer.
Database [Smart] FlashCache is NOT the same as Exadata [Smart] FlashCache.

To be clear, Exadata storage cells are installed with Oracle Linux (only). Database servers in the DBM may be installed with Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris (x86).
