What database to chose?

Hello,


What database is preferable for corporate GIS system - Oracle Spatial or MS SQL (spatial)?

 

Dozens desktop (GeoMedia), hundreds of web / mobile users (Geospatial Portal).
100+ layers.

 

Thanks!

Re: What database to chose?

There is no easy answer Smiley Happy 

 

There are many factors to consider:

 

Existing corporate DB infrastructure.

Existing corporate DBA talent pool.

Corporate GIS preference

Corporate IT/DBA preference

Budget$$$

etc

Fifteen years ago, Oracle would have been an obvious choice.  However, MSSQL Spatial has come a long way in recent years.  Google is your best friend Smiley Happy
