I am probably in the best position to compare apples with apples.  
I have both UniVerse and Oracle on the same IBM p660 4 processor box with
6Gb RAM.  The 800,000 customers are replicated from UniVerse to Oracle,
although the Oracle version is only a subset of the attributes required by a
different application.
 
Both have an index on the first line of the Postal Address.
 
My query was to show all customers with the first line of the Postal address
like %EXPLORATION
 
Results:-
UniVerse 9 seconds
Oracle 25 seconds
