Mission-critical functions at the heart of your business - such as order entry, finance, human resources, customer relationship management, and enterprise resource planning - frequently depend on "always-on" and scalable Oracle Database functionality. In the past, many businesses have selected HP-UX/Itanium systems as the backbone of an Oracle Database infrastructure because they could supply the throughput and availability needed for key database workloads.

The life cycle of an HP-UX/Itanium infrastructure for Oracle Database, however, is rapidly coming to an end. On July 1, 2013, Oracle announced the availability of Oracle Database 12c. Because cloud deployments are the projected direction for IT services, Oracle Database 12c follows a multi-tenant architecture that facilitates cloud delivery of database services. It seeks to simplify database management tasks by managing multiple co-located databases as one, while simultaneously enabling data isolation and database resource prioritization. Changes to existing Oracle database tables and applications are not required. However, Oracle supports this new release only on Solaris, Windows, and Linux® operating systems - and not on HP-UX. This means that current HP-UX customers must migrate to a different platform to take advantage of Oracle Database 12c and its ability to ease the transition to a database service cloud.

Red Hat® Enterprise Linux is a sound platform choice when migrating Oracle Database workloads from HP-UX/Itanium. Only Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers enterprise performance, scalability, and reliability similar to HP-UX, comparable instrumentation, and cloud readiness - plus the demonstrated stability of Linux market leadership. This whitepaper highlights the compelling advantages of hosting Oracle Database workloads on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It also describes benefits that other businesses have experienced in moving Oracle Databases from HP-UX to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform.
