Empower 3 on Red Hat Linux
Has anyone deployed a large Empower 3 system where the Oracle database is on Red Hat Linux? If so, how is the performance as compared to a Windows Oracle(if you moved to Linux) or share any pros/cons so far.
The consideration we had back when we upgraded from Emp2 to Emp3 was that with a Windows server, Oracle licenses are included from Waters/Empower. We were informed that if we installed on Linux that we would have to obtain/manage the licenses which then is a cost above that of Empower itself. IT really wanted us to install on Linux, but this was the deal breaker so we installed on Windows as a result.
So, if that is still accurate, that would be a con for most.
