Apples and Oranges, Part II: A Linux DBMS Comparison - page 9
The Database Design
All of the three discussed DBMSes are pretty easy to install, set up and program. The client libraries implementing the C API are tiny; compared to, say, state-of-the-art GUI toolkits, their size is negligible, and there are no big differences in binary size or the memory footprints of the clients.
The increased verbosity and longer turn-around times of PostgreSQL's ESQL API are compensated for by less effort spent converting strings to non-string data types and vice versa.
So far, I have said nothing about performance. I'll delve into that in the next part of this series.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
