comment Value of Itanium or Sparc over x86_64 for Oracle Deployment
these are pretty much my main fears. It feels like a dying platform and I can't help but get that Aplha CPU vibe from it. I don't want to bind out core services into heavy handed support arrangements for an extra fraction of performance. Anything that would prevent us from moving forward or staying current with software releases would be a non starter.
