If you are planning to migrate your SUSE Linux to Oracle Linux, check out this great article where Dell IT talks about best practices and why they chose Oracle Linux.
Here's an excerpt:
"Migrating 1,700 servers from SUSE Linux to Oracle Linux was an aggressive IT decision, one deemed necessary by Dell to gain better stability and support, easier administration, and lower costs. Extracting the underlying operating system layer and replacing it, while leaving the application layer intact, was possible only because of standardization across the Linux platforms. The bulk of the site-specific operating system configuration could simply be backed up and restored directly on the new operating system. Similarly, Oracle Database and other applications required only minor configuration changes to transition from SUSE Linux to Oracle Linux."
