DB migration is complex process due to multiple factors involved in it like-

1. DB size

2. DB version

3. Endian

4. OS

5. RAC/Non-RAC

6. ASM/Non-ASM

7. Engineered system Vs. Non-engineered system

8. DB edition

9. Available downtime

10.Connectivity between source and target server

11. In-place Vs out of place etc.

Similarly there are many migration methods

1.Physical migration methods (like- RMAN, Data Guard, Transportable tablespace, transportable database, cross platform backup & Restore, ASM rebalance etc.)

2. Logical migration (like- CTAS, Golden Gate, Streams, Data pump, Export-import etc.)

3. Storage based

So why not create one tool "DB migration advisor" that will take various inputs like above and will suggests appropriate methods.

What do you think about this?
