Hello Alvaro.  My name is Chris Robinson, and I'm a Technical Account Manager here at Red Hat.  Your question about migrating Oracle to Linux is a VERY common one.  You'll be in great company with legions of our other customers running in a configuration like this.  I've compiled a few quick links for you to start off your research:

These are just the most recent examples of videos and Reference Architectures we have here in the Customer Portal.  I'll have to dig a bit deeper to see if we have any ROI calculators, but the facts detailed in these documents and videos should certainly help you start to build a compelling business case for the move.
