I will go with MS SQL server

My SQL can not be a good for this company as you mention in disadvantages of MY SQL.

mujhay b MS SQL server hi best lag raha hai...

 zain mahmood 

  Can u please tell me you are going with SQL or MY SQL?

which one is better can any one guide ???

Well,I think each and every technology out there is available to cater for some specific scenarios.We do not expect MYSQL to serve as a solution to each and every business need

Advantages of MySQL over Oracle :

MySQL is characterised as a fast, robust database with a good feature set, but one which lacks all the extras of something like Oracle ... so if you're writing code that's designed to be portable it's a pretty good choice. Admin / security are effective but the setup of these and othe features isn't over-complicated. All in all, a pretty good choice for many "middle of the road" requirements.

MySQL is characterised as a free, fast, reliable open source relational database. It does lack some sophistication and facilities, but it has an active development team and, as it goes from release to release, more capabilities are added. At certain times there will be a trade-off between speed and capabilities, and the MySQL team intend to keep their database engine fast and reliable. 

Advantages of Oracle over MySQL :

Oracle is much versatile than MySQL. Oracle can run and handle more transactions than MysQL. Oracle would be better if you are going to have lots of db usage.

I've used MySQL. Only for a forum. Still, MySQL takes up resources with PHP that affected the server load. Oracle on the other hand is better with memory leaks and handles multiple threads. You can do SQL Transactions, stored procedures, DTS in Oracle that you can not do in MySQL earlier versions.

Oracle is expensive, although they came out with Oracle Free Edition to attract MySQL users.

MySQL users enjoy this database because it is available on virtually all hosting companies. Oracle are only limited to large corporations due to licencing costs and not all hosting companies have Oracle (they might have SQL Server, but not Oracle).

You can make billions of data with MySQL, but it will be slow on the server. In addition, backing up the MySQL database takes forever, versus Oracle's tools which makes database backup a cinch.

If you are going to use MySQL, then add lots of memory. In addition, I recommend that you seperate the Website from the database. In other words, have emails and website on a seperate server and only have a dedicated MySQL server specific to mysql/db only.

MySQL is Free, It's everwhere, that's the whole concept!!!

I think Oracle is best RDMS out of Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL. Anyone agree please comments.

1-Oracle can store large  data records  , Mysql  can but it is slow.

2- Oracle is good recovery manager , Mysql is not good at this level.

 Whats about MS SQL server? 

SQL server is better than Mysql , sql is new world technology and very effective for any type of organization. Now the complication is between SQL server and oracle. Oracle is less effective if comparing with SQL server. 

Dear Student,

At any point of time Oracle for sure is NOT less effective compared to SQL server and Oracle for sure much powerful than SQL, but we need to answer according to the requirement of this company. Both systems can handle billions of records. Yes answer should be one of these 2 but we need to justify our answer. Why don't we post each of us at least one point in favour of his/her choice. In the end there will be enough points to support our decision. Here's my first vote:

Oracle: Can easily handle data of 5000 employees and all the related transactions to them.
