DBAs and Admins

Topics: SQL Server, Data

I was talking with a developer friend today about how I used to work on Oracle as opposed to how I work with SQL Server.

Basically for me it boiled down to the fact that when I worked with Oracle, I was only in the database product. When I work with SQL Server, I'm in SQL Server, the OS, the SAN, and more. Sometimes I even work with the network. So in my case, anyway, I'm more of a multitasker. Sometimes I wonder if that's a good thing - for me it feels like it is.

Speaking of which, InformIT has more than just SQL Server. Need more Oracle info? Here's a great book: http://www.informit.com/store/product.aspx?isbn=0672327910
