Oracle's Free Database Server


I just noticed today that Oracle has released a beta edition of Oracle Database 10g Express Edition. Oracle must be feeling the pressure from open source databases such as MySQL, and PostgreSQL, just like Microsoft has. Oracle Express is pretty similar to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express:

  • Free To Deploy
  • Supports up to 4GB of data
  • Supports only one CPU
  • Supports up to 1GB of RAM
  • One instance per server
  • Downloads For Windows or Linux - no mac :(
  • And is free to distribute with your applications

More Info.

Oracle's Free Database Server was first published on October 31, 2005.
