System copy option

Post by dontlookdown » Tue Mar 03, 2015 10:46 am

I am trying to find out if i need to perform a homogeneous or heterogeneous system copy.
The guides\notes say if the OS or DB are different, then it's a heterogeneous copy, and if the OS and DB are staying the same you do a homogeneous copy.
In my case, the OS and DB are staying exactly the same, but the hardware is changing.
Do i still perform a homogeneous copy.
Basically we are moving our systems from an outsourced data center to our internal data center, so i will be building the system identical, just on different hardware.
Thanks for your advice,

if the hardware change means more (less) CPU and memory then you can use homogeneous system copy.

if you change from IBM to HP ... well ... then we need more information.
