Hello Experts,
Our customer needs to distribute a small app to several distant locations....
Now this app will have a database...
1) Which is the best database to distribute many times (like little less than a hundred )
2) Is it ok to consider Oracle and MySQL as the top databases in the world for medium and small apps for distribution ?
3) which database would you suggest for easy remote instalation and implementation as well as maintenace?

regards,

You can't just distribute oracle.  It's a licensed DB.

Ah thanks.  Didn't realize that existed.

What OS is this for?  That's relevant to the discussion.

Yes, the question what was cost effective and if the target is Windows then there's probably a value in considering SQL Server.

Indeed, as sql server express version also exists.
Like oracle and mysql, the "free" versions come with limitations that need to be clearly studied before choosing

Hi thank you for your answers,
I am seeing the main limitations for Oracle XE are

11GB of data and 1 GB Ram.... no hard limit for user connections..
Is there any other important limitation?
Thank you

CPU.

...
Oracle Database XE can be installed on any size host machine with any number of CPUs (one database per machine), but XE will store up to 11GB of user data, use up to 1GB of memory, and use one CPU on the host machine.
