Thanks for sharing your experience on Oracle technical knowledge. I would like to get your opinion on SAP application and its database.
Most of so called “best practice” around the world, they’re implementing and packaging the SAP apps together with Oracle database for the best result on performance and etc. I’ve heard and seen there are organization that implementing SAP pack together with MS SQL server database. What do you think? Anything that technically MS SQL lack of or not in par compare to Oracle to serve SAP?
In my opinion, this question is very subjective and analysis has to be done on a case-by-case basis.
You have to ask the developers of the SAP software to tell you how differently their software runs on different database platforms. You then have to compare this difference in performance and features against the price. If possible, do a test run using your expected load to verify.
Choose the path that makes the most sense for your organisation. For example, if your load is not too high it might not be sensible to spend a lot more for a marginally faster performance.
Again, this is a tough question to answer. “Best practice” is not a single setup used by everyone. It should be a process to find the most suitable solution for your needs.
