Our organization is looking at virtualizing our AIX Sybase 15.7 to RedHat Linux using Sybase. I would like to know some of the considerations you would look at when undertaking this.

I have contacted Sybase about the licensing to determine if it is platform independent and started collecting statistics on the server load and database usage. Also, the DBA scripts and OS scripts.

Has anyone undertaken such as venture and if so, would you be will to share your thought with me? Even if you have not, I would appreciate some input. Thank you.
