This bulletin explains how tablespaces can now be transported between different OS platforms (cross-platform), as well as different RDBMS versions.  The cross-platform feature is available in 10g onwards.  This list is taken from; older RDBMS versions may contain fewer platforms.

The output of the query can change with version. So please use the query above to find the current support platforms.  In previous releases, the transportable tablespace feature allowed the transfer between platforms of the same architecture only.


- Publish structured data and distribute for integration on other platforms
- Distribute data from a DW environment to data marts (typically different platforms)
- Share read only tablespaces across heterogeneous clusters
- Migrate a database from one platform to another by only rebuilding the catalog and transporting the datafiles
