A little known MOS note describes how you can potentially reduce downtime by a significant amount when migrating databases between systems with different endianness. Many sites are looking for ways to move their databases from big-endian platforms such as HP-UX, AIX or Solaris/SPARC to an Exadata system running Linux. In this webinar, Martin Bach will explain how implementing a cross-platform incremental backup in conjunction with cross-platform transportable tablespaces makes this possible.

A live Q&A session with Martin Bach will follow the presentation.
