Where I work:

  • Oracle dbs: 3, with development instances.
  • Non-Oracle, mostly SQL Server: 9, with 3 additional development. That's after consolidation: previously we had 6 Oracle and >35 SQL Server.

Need I say more?

I just have to laugh when the Oracle reps come in and ask if I'm using grid to "manage *all* my Oracle dbs".... Received on Sun Feb 28 2010 - 04:50:26 CST
