I just came across PDF published by Microsoft to promote SQL Server 2005. I find few things very interesting. I will list them here.
- NASDAQ, the world’s first electronic stock market replaced its aging mainframe computers with Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 on two 4-node clusters to support its Market Data Dissemination System (MDDS).
- Every trade processed in the NASDAQ marketplace goes through the system with Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 handling some 5,000 transactions per second at market open.
- The system also responds to about 10,000 queries a day and is able to handle real-time queries against data without slowing the database down.
SQL Server 2005 Features
- Built-in Business Intelligence
Data Management Capability: Business Benefits
- Faster results
- Better decisions
- Trusted Platform
- Total cost of ownership

Hi pinal Dave,
I hear the same news and happy that sql now comes in the top layer, But i have a confusion to take a descion whether to go in sybase or stick with Sql
I have a Past Two year of experenice as a Sql DBA + Developer
But now i have the option to work with sql or sybase not both
for next 2 years.
previously so many sybase guys said that u know sybase have the hold in the corprate environment and Nasdaq is running on sybase and all other financial players working on sybase , so they argue that sybase market is good and i am not feel confident with this as i worked with that for copule of months , i bore with the CUI based presentation of sybase
so i want your suggest whether to move or stick with sql
I agree that sybase as good market now a days when compare to other Databases. I believe Sql also running faster.
Its up to you how you want to build your future.
…. but Nasdaq use Oracle for their large systems such as their 40TB Data Warehouse.
… interesting that they chose not to use Oracle when replacing their ageing Mainframes.
