Edison Group: Oracle Database 11g Saves 41% in DBA Costs Over SQL Server 2008

A recent study conducted by the Edison Group quantifies how Oracle Database widens the manageability lead against Microsoft SQL Server and shows:

* DBAs can perform typical administrative functions in 41% less time when using Oracle Database 11g compared to Microsoft SQL Server 2008.
* Oracle Database 11g requires 43% fewer steps for the same set of standard RDBMS tasks than Microsoft SQL Server 2008 using Edison’s metric for complexity assessment.
* Benefiting from increased DBA productivity due to lower complexity and higher efficiency cited above, businesses could save up to $33,520.47 per year per DBA by using Oracle Database 11g rather than Microsoft SQL Server 2008.

The main areas of difference Edison discovered between the two products were:

Backup & Recovery: In the case of backup and recovery tasks, Oracle Database 11g offers architectural and functional capabilities beyond those offered by SQL Server 2008. Oracle Database 11g took 53% less time and 60% fewer steps than Microsoft SQL Server in backup and recovery tasks.

Performance Diagnostics and Tuning: In this category, Oracle Database 11g demonstrated a significant 87% savings in time.

Once more Oracle Database 11g with its industry leading self-management infrastructure, simply outperforms Microsoft SQL Server.
