Unix DB software ?

Unix DB software ?

Unix DB software ?

Im currently using Postgres on Unix. Are there any software packages available for unix systems that have the advanced features of SQL server like stored procedures?

Any suggestions or links are much appreciated.


RE: Unix DB software ?

Well, you can always use Oracle, if you can afford it of course.

RE: Unix DB software ?

We used to use very powerful RDBMS called Recital, which even 10 years ago was fully SQL-compliant. Also has the benefit of being fully dbase/FoxBase compatible.  Have seen recent versions but check out www.rectial.com

We're trying to put together a box for less than $3000 .. including the purchase of CF Pro.

   A small teradata Box from NCR is probably out of that price range, more in line with Oracle (50 - 100 K).   

On the other hand if you want to move to Windows ( or at least Test drive teradata for FREE ) you can down load a fully functional Teradata for Windows ( NT or 2000 ) Demo copy of teradata from


For absolutely nothing ( except some personal information like where do you want it mailed ).

the only cavet is not to use it in a production environment and the database can't be greater that a GIG.  Other than that it is a full copy of Teradata with all the client utilities ( that they were willing to give away for free ).

Also it is identical in form a function to our UNIX product, so you could actually kick the tires by writing your own Visual basic and JDBC/ODBC applications  ( and stored procedures ( requires a copy of visual C++ to be installed not provided )) and see if you like it.

We have enhanced our stored procedures in the latest version 4.1 released at the end of July, ( Jul 30, 2001 ) but that hasn't been pressed for DEMO yet.

You can look at our client and database software documentation at


you can look at what other customers think of Teradata at


Teradata, I'm not a saleman just a programmer.
