Not bad for a UK company. Les. -----Original Message----- From: Dawn M. Wolthuis [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: 23 April 2004 14:50 To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: How far can U2 scale? At what point in the life of application software would it be so large that you could not (or would not want to) support it with your existing UniData or UniVerse database? Is there a point where you would be better served by DB2 or Oracle, for example due to the scale you are working with? I hear people talk about moving way from U2 in order to do ODBC and use standard industry tools (and most find that the grass is not greener for those purposes), but I don't hear about switching because of running into scaling issues. However, we sometimes think of PICK as addressing small-to-mid size businesses and RDBMS folks sometimes think of their products as scaling the best. So, what's the cut-off for U2?
