Oracle Berkeley DB

Berkely Database is particularly adept in its ability to scale, partition, and segment data sequences in a clear and efficient manner. It also requires little manual administration, and is capable of scaling 256 TB of data into a single file. This has been very helpful for us.

Oracle Solaris

For running Oracle databases, Solaris can't be beat. Leveraging Zones allows for virtualization out of the box. In addition, using zones with clustering can make migrating from Solaris 10 to 11 very easy. Finally, in an enterprise environment that requires 24/7 up-time and meeting SLA's, Solaris is a viable and robust choice.

Stress testing and timing is key. You need test systems that mirror the live environments. User testing must be reflected in peak loads.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Berkeley DB

In our opinion Oracle Berkeley DB is the most mature solution outperforming other vendors in several aspects. Its high and solid stable performance has huge significance to us and to our customers. Wide spread community of Berkeley DB users is a valuable source of information. Also high quality support provided by Oracle makes solving any emerging issues super fast and easy.

Oracle Solaris

We also use Linux in our shop. Linux is capable, and a very good OS. Solaris was chosen because we can afford it. Again Linux is capable, but Linux is a disruptive technology i.e. it is a "good enough" Unix.
