    Hi All,
    For a technical research I need some documentation in order to compare last release of MS SQL server and oracle? What is the differences between two RDMS?
    Thanks in advanced.

    I think no one can developer that question.
    My suggestion is to find articles in general, and not in sql or oracle forums.

    You are asking a broader question which gets multiple answers and endless debate [:)]. I would suggest what kind of technical areas you wanted to know the difference, I will nto suggest the relevant Vendor sites...but there are few good blogs out there which can give some perspective to the discussion.

    It is one of agrumentative question that I see on the forums.
    As for you it is more on technical research the best bet is to go through their sites such as Microsoft & Oracle for any whitepapers, where you will find the obvious CAT & MOUSE play [:)].
    So referring the blogs you can go thru:
    Also I can't remember on which site it is referred, this is one of best response:
    Both the products are excellent on their own featuers. How they perform and scale is dependent upon the following (in this order)
    1. The quality of the database design your developers create, including indexes.
      • The quality of the queries your developers create.
        • The quality and configuration of your hardware
          • The database platform you choose.

    Just to give u a little advice from my experience: consider the following when comparing: cost, skills, manageability, compatibility - this is a good starting point.
