    Do you have an idea on how many customers are running 11i on database 11g ( or in their production environment ?

    We just upgraded one of our test databases and hope to go live with 11g DB in the next 3-6 months. Was curious to know how many customers have done this already.

    Does it mean we are able to use exadata?

    Hello Mike,

    Yes, Steven mentioned in his previous blog article about Exadata that R12 can use it once certified with (http://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/2009/01/running_apps_11i_on_hp_oracle_database_machine.html)

    Hi, Naveen,

    My anecdotal impression is that we're still in the early stages of the EBS 11i + 11gR1 adoption cycle. A relatively small number of customers have put this into production to date.

    The customers I've heard from personally tend to be very large (e.g. a national European transportation infrastructure organization, a national US retailer).

    I would be very interested in updates on your 11gR1 upgrade. Please let me know if you have any difficulties with SRs logged for this project.

    Hi, Dayo,

    We're working on that certification right now. I don't have firm schedules for this certification yet, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.
