Databases Eager for 64-bit Battle

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From ZDNet News]

IBM, Oracle and Microsoft are readying supercharged versions of their databases to take advantage of new high-end hardware, but analysts say sheer processing muscle may not be enough to spur demand.

Oracle says it will be the first out of the gate when it ships later this month a 64-bit version of its flagship Oracle 9i database optimized for Intel's Itanium 2 on HP-UX, Hewlett-Packard's version of the Unix operating system. Versions for Linux and Windows on Itanium 2 are slated for early next year.

In April next year, Microsoft will match Oracle with a 64-bit version of its SQL Server 2000 for Itanium 2 when the company ships its first 64-bit operating system, Windows .Net Server 2003.

For its part, IBM is readying for April of next year a 64-bit version of its DB2 8.1 database for Windows .Net Server and Linux.
