Albo się mylę, albo pada mit droższego oracle'a niż progress'a
(przynajmniej w zastosowaniach internetowych).


Poniżej kolejny przyczynek do dyskusji o cenach. Patrząc na cenę danego rozwiązania, trzeba pamietać także o kosztach późniejszej eksploatacji. Za licencję płaci się raz, a za eksploatację - przez lata.

Internal maintenance costs are defined as the "efforts spent by the internal staff in deploying and maintaining the system." These costs are dramatically lower when using Progress than with products like Microsoft SQL Server 7 or Oracle 8i. Internal Maintenance Comparison (5 years)                        Progress           MS SQL Server 7          Oracle 8i                             Progress           MS SQL Server 7          Oracle 8i10 users            $13.165            $30.000                        $126.000    25 users            $16.012            $30.000                        $135.000 This cost difference starts when provisioning for a new customer.* A template database can be copied into place much easier than other database products allow.* The same application can be used against any customer database without a single change to the underlying application. Because of the security issues, the predominant deployment model today is a unique database created for each customer. We expect that this will change over time to a shared database environment. With larger deployments, internal maintenance costs are dramatically less and can result in the difference between a mildly or wildly successful ASP business. Internal Maintenance Comparison (5 years)                    Progress                Oracle 8i500 users     $511.500                $4.750.000
