    You need to have a certified migration consultant on-site to do that migration. If you do it on your own, you'll loose support for problems during the migration and for the target system (see http://service.sap.com/osdbmigration).

    what is "the best performance"?

    • it's all the debate about what is better, Oracle or MS-SQL.

      if you start from scratch, SQL server might be a better option because of its low maintenance compared to Oracle. But Oracle 10g is getting easier and easier to manage.

      As I said earlier, you already have Oracle, so, might as well stick with it.

    Thanks all for your valuable suggestions. The configuration that I found suitable was HP Windows 2003 and ms sql 2005.
