If you do a redesign (or a new design, for that matter), Oracle beats VB hands down. If however, you have an existing application you want to keep more or less, I don't have an opinion due to lack of detail information.

In any case, if I read "6 different locations on 1oracle database", the word that pops up immediately is "Internet" and "multi-tier"...
