What does Oracle offer?

Recommended Posts

I know that Oracle is stupidly expensive, I was just wondering why people would buy a database such as this when MySQL, PostgreSQL and even Access can do virtually everything needed for free.

 

Does anyone have it and can share your thoughts because I am interested to know?

You might not want to state that your Acess is free......

 

also its not virtually everything to certain people mysql 4.0 does not support referencial integrity and stored procedures and the like. do a bit of googling you'll find lots of stuff about this. the new Mysql post on /. had alot of "informative" things about the difference from the Zealots on both side of the fence

It would just take a really long time to go through all the features that Oracle has. It has a long long head start on the competition, and has every feature imaginable in the relational database world.

Oracle has released a free version of Oracle 10, at last !, with very few limitations

( none that should matter if you are not running an enterprise system ) that you can use

and/or distribute with your apps etc....

As stated before, Oracle has very many features and to compare these to other db's in a note like this is not possible.
