[lug] Databases

We have used Sybase SQL Anywhere on Linux. It's less expensive than Oracle,
but has the features that I think make up an industrial strength DB:

Declarative Referential Integrity
True Transaction Log
Stored Procedure Language
Outer Joins
JDBC Support

In addition to these features, perhaps the killer feature of SQLA is the
replication. We have a system set up to replicate sets of data to a data
logger machine, and then the data from the logger gets replicated up to the
server. This is a pretty trivial use of the feature, but it is nice. For
anyone looking for a full featured, but light-weight database SQLA is hard
to beat.
