# It's a very simple equation, really: 12 Oracle dbs, 2 DB2 dbs, and 250+ MSSQL at our site.

Seems like often those MS SQL database multiply like guinea pigs. Often ending up in "production" of some sort tied to some web server application that has been thrown together.

Then surprise surprise they are not backed up or monitored or the server they are running on runs out of space or the auto magic microsoft patch wednesday stuff causes the old egg in the face.

Seems like most of the people doing MS SQL really do not understand that you do not really need to create a new database each time out. Or perhaps it is just easier and quicker and well no one is watching or caring too much.

Just my opinion here. Received on Sat Jun 16 2012 - 18:36:43 CDT
