    Choosing a DBMS: Oracle, MS SQL, or MySQL.

    Hello everyone!

    As you can probably tell, I am new here. I came here with two questions in mind.

    The first question needs somewhat of an introduction. I am currently doing a report for a class, and in this report I am to weigh the pros and cons of three databases: MS SQL, Oracle, and MySQL. I am setting up a poll on this thread, and I hope that some of you can provide insight into which database you would choose, and why. This will report will ultimately decide on which of the 3 I will use for the back end of my website as well. Thanks!

    My other question is much simpler. I apologize, as I know this question is a bit off topic, but does anyone know of any good database related journals/periodicals?

    Thanks everyone!

    Well, the database chosen would ultimately depend upon more information, including (off the top of my head):
    • database type (OLTP/OLAP)
    • anticipated storage requirements
    • anticipated concurrency
    • anticipated data throughput/bandwidth
    • licensing costs
    • staff familiarity
    You've also left off several 'names' from your list (DB2, PostgreSQL) that probably should also be considered.

    i think that
    you should try open source rdbms like
    Firebird and PostgreSQL
    these databases are so fast and have a lot of properties like the databases you add to the poll
