As low as
1/3 the price.
Which database has the right moves? DB2® on Power Systems™ performs
three times faster per core than Oracle Database on SPARC—based on
both TPC-C and SAP® SD benchmarks. * Yet the price of DB2 is as low as
1/3 the price of Oracle Database.** Maybe that’s why in 2010 over 1,000
Oracle Database clients chose DB2 instead. Game over.
