Comment: Only 2 DB's Please (Score 1) 288

Every ops group should support 2 db's: a free one and a non-free one. You use the free one where you can, where it makes sense. You use the non-free one everywhere else.

And please do not ask your ops group to support more than 2 db's.

It is strategically imperative to add a free db to the mix if only to give you some leverage over the non-free vendors. Otherwise Oracle will bleed you. So OK they're going to bleed you anyway but maybe not so badly.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.

Working...
