do you can share some informations about your storage infrastructure? Also an accepted downtime and size or your DB might influence the decission.
If it's a SAN, can you just detatch the LUNs from the old server and attach them to the new?

the physical equivalent with built in disks would be removing the disks from old node and attaching them to new one? (I prefer the 'logical only' solution in a SAN, removing hardware is always somehow risky)

Beside that a dataguard comes to my mind - so the new server is just a switchover away.

other solutions are datapump over a DB link, ... do you need still more?
