Many years ago, your organization may have made the best possible decision – to choose Sun Sparc for your servers and Solaris for your operating system. But technology is ever-evolving… and now you are looking for a roadmap forward. This presentation, by Oracle ACE Director Alum Daniel Morgan, will be high impact, technical, and provide specific guidance on tips and traps when planning your migration to Linux. Many of these same tips and traps apply equally for migrating from AIX and HP/UX to Linux.
Migrations are not easy as proven year-after-year by those that fail and those that fail to achieve their original objective of lowering cost and improving performance. Morgan’s presentation will not bore you with talking about the tools you already know such as RMAN and DataPump but rather focuses on tools you may not be aware of as well as the specific metadata you must collect to fully prepare for, and achieve, a successful database migration.
