Whitepaper: Spotlight on SQL Server: Key Findings From the 2005 WinterCorp TopTen Program

by WinterJan 01, 2008

The WinterCorp TopTen Program has identified and studied the world’s leading databases, exploring VLDB technology trends and recognizing the accomplishments of leading implementers. The TopTen Program measures the world’s leading databases on four validated metrics. The WinterCorp TopTen Program is the only survey of database scalability that validates user survey responses and uses the database’s own statistics to accomplish this. This paper examines results of the 2005 TopTen Program which reveal significant strengths for Microsoft SQL Server in the very large database (VLDB) market for both data warehouse (DW) and transaction processing (OLTP) systems.
