Oracle Express vs Enterprise?

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a fact sheet out there on the differences between the various Oracle DBs. I have not been able to located one yet.

I'm mainly interested if there are performance differences if any. If anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

    Hi Sean,

    in addition to the license terms, you could take a look at the [url http://www.oracle.com/us/products/database/product-editions-066501.html]11g Editions comparison sheet. It's still based on 10.2 XE, so you'll find the database size to be 4 GB in that document, although you can store up to 11 GB in 11.2 XE and there is 64bit suppot for XE now. But basically, the features list is still up to date.
    As you talk about performance: You also have this CPU and RAM Limitation in XE, which probably has the most impact on performance...

    Due to XE's fixed limits on CPU and memory usage (and other limits), there will be performance differences compared to other database editions.

    However, you may be interested to see how XE performs on its own:
