Database migration to Exadata can be accomplished in a number of ways, as discussed in Oracle® Database High Availability Best Practices 11g Release 2 (11.2) Chapter 14 Reducing Downtime for Planned Maintenance Section 14.2.7 Database Platform or Location Migration.
One way to perform this task is the Transportable Tablespaces for Platform Migration. The method described in this document can be used to migrate any database (version 10.2 to 188.8.131.52), from any platform, to 184.108.40.206 and later on Exadata. We have successfully performed the migration from Solaris SPARC (database versions 10.2.0.1, 10.2.0.4 and 220.127.116.11), IBM AIX (database version 18.104.22.168) and Linux (database version 22.214.171.124) to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.0 on Exadata.
