My Tech Talk at HP last year had a bunch of this:
I will say overall, that a *real* comparison of appropriateness of
various databases will have to be painfully detailed. I was asked at
Sun to do a breakdown of "when should we recommend" just for Postgres,
MySQL, Derby and Oracle; I wouldn't want to do the whole field. And
don't forget that there's a whole new ball game of specialty databases
these days, including (but not limited to):
Also, when you compare "MySQL" you have to treat each storage engine
really as a separate database for comparison purposes; they don't behave
the same, and usually migration between table types is very difficult.
I hope you have a year for this project!
