David,
I was just thinking "why reinvent the wheel" as I was opening your response. Just how large is your database?
When you say "lower cost", does that mean just the financial cost? You can get an excellent publicly-licensed (free) DBMS and set up an optimal solution. Optimal as in the best combination of efficiency, performance, low repetitive stress, low financial cost, short development time, and long leisurely hours away from the keyboard.
Reinventing the wheel is just painful and unrealistic. - cb
