> Hi all,
> I have to buy new db server.
> I'm using Oracle on *nix with cca 10GB db for 3-tier architecture software.
> The IS will have about 300-500 users (parallel cca 200) and the operations
> are mostly transactional.
> My question is about HW.
> Have I use Intel or Sparc?
> What do you recommend and what's your experience with support, upgrade and
> TCO?
> Thanks
