Cross-Platform Transportable Database and Oracle Engineered Systems

Cross-platform transportable database is not the same thing as transportable tablespace. When performing x-platform transportable database we copy the entire database, including the SYSTEM and SYSAUX tablespaces from one platform to another. The usual containment checks are no longer needed and because the SYSTEM tablespace is also being copied, no metadata datapump export/import step is required. But cross-platform transportable database can only be performed between platforms that have the same endian format.
