Large data footprint for OS/DB Migration



We're figuring out a way to migrate an ERP landscape with 20TB oracle data on AIX platform to Linux environment.

Of course there is a way to do it by using export/import (R3load) method but we doubt the downtime
is not acceptable.

We've done some research and found several related tools/methods related :

1) Migration Monitor (w/ SWPM) with split

2) Distribution Monitor

3) For Oracle only : Cross Platform Transportable Tablespace (XTTS) <-- supported by SAP during migartion ?

I'm wondering how many alternatives there are, and anyone have experience of TB-grade migration using
the methods listed ? How about the downtime ? or SAP have official service for this kind of customer ?
