woaw .. 400000 euros and you want to spare 4 x 279 euros (basic RHEL 
subscription) ?
Sorry but i don't get the point ..
Of course you can normally switch to CentOS but for such business 
critical application (and the fact that 4 x 279 euros is nothing against 
SAP price itself) i'd rather continue with RHN subscription .. just my 
two cents of course
