 Sql Server vs Oracle vs Ibm vs....
Hi,

You guys are using SQL server.  Have you guys used any
other db in the passed?  How do they compare in
reliability, maintenance, speed, scalability...

I would really appreciate input from people out there
using it to get a real sense of its capabilities.

Is anybody using it for mission critical applications?  
Are any large operations built around SQL server?

Thanks,
Sam Khavari

Both Dell.com and BarnesAndNoble.com (bn.com) use SQL Server as their
back-end database. You should be able to find quite a bit of information
about these and other users at microsoft.com. For starters, you might surf
over to:

You can also check the benchmarks at tpc.org to get see how
it performs compared to other databases:

 Sam,

 Yes, lots of people use SQL Server for large/critical operations.  As do
people with oracle and db/2.  They are all excellent products.

 Which dbms/os/hardware platforms does the company you're enquiring for have
most experience with?

According to the article, Dell uses LDAP to store user information. I always
thought that the best way to store this information was relationally.
Anybody dare say why Dell would want to use LDAP?

"Dell uses the industry-standard Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) feature of Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition to perform user
registration on its Gigabuys.com site. LDAP provides faster and easier
checkout by storing standard billing and shipping information so customers
don't have to repeatedly reenter it."

Regards,
Eric
