compatibility check in between xeon64 bit and itanium64 bit for QAS servers


Dear Expert,

Our business are running on SAP ECC6.0 having two box DEV and PRD and quality is in Dev box using different client.

Now we are planning to make a sepearte box for quality system.

Our DEV and PRD systems are running on itanium 64 based servers and managements are suggesting to buy xeon based server for new upcoming quality box since its low cost and MacAffe antivirus is supporting on Xeon based processor and oracle also planning to remove support on itanium based in coming future.

My question is :

can we implement a xeon based quality server in between currently running itanium based( develpment and production) servers and will it work fine ? if yes then what the precautions we have to take and what the issue we can face in future.

Pls suggest so we can go ahead accordingly to buy a quality server.
