1815Re: PeopleSoft DBA Forum New poll for psftdba
- May 4, 2006I would *NEVER* be willing to switch from anything that doesn't have Oracle
as a back end and Unix as an OS. Windoze/sql server is too flakey, full of
security holes and not scalable for large scale applications. DB2 is too
slow and cumberson. Ditto for Informix and Sybase. Windoze process
schedulers can *barely* handle that, and aren't up to the task of even being
PIA hosts. The mainframe, well, perfectly goodas a boat anchor or
artificial reef, but not right for Client Server applications.
Just my thoughts, based upon 15 years in IT and 7 with PeopleSoft. And,
yes, I have been exposed to all of the OSs and databases I have depricated

I am agree with you but just would like to inform you that I had just
only 25 options to entered when I was forming this poll.
Anyway, let this poll be completed and find out the missing
platform�. I appreciate your quick response for this poll.
This is just to track which OS & DB is mostly used. Also, how many
PeopleSoft's clients are willingly to switch over to other platform
after acquisition i.e. DB2 + Mainframe to Oracle + Unix flavor....
Definitely your responses will help to achieve some conclusion, and I
hope that will be beneficiary for all of us.
