Look idiot, in response to the orginal OP I said this...

Whatever you do, don't try and apply Oracle theory and practices against a SQL Server install - the two products are very very different and have very different strategies for dealing with performance and scalability

I'm not the one trying to apply the same techniques, strategies, doctrine to different products; by not agreeing with the statement I made (copied above because you appear to be null and void of intelligence) then you obviously think that you can apply oracle logic to SQL Server install - which, like I stated - you can't.

I note you never commented on my remark about "unbreakable" - speaks volumes...
