I am sure this is a well visited topic, but I have not seen much of it
lately.

With regards to WORKGROUP class servers, running Sybase System 11, or
SQL Anyhwere, I would like to solicit the opinions of those who have
used both, and have a feeling on which performs better in the areas of
performance, managability, and reliability.

I prefer NT. It's easier to manage, has been reliable, and has built in
support for SMP and has for some time.

I'll go the other way. We prefer NetWare because we have lots more
experience of it. Performance of SA is fine but our database is small
(MB rather than GB).
Funnily enough we use NT workstations, however we don't believe NT is as
mature as NetWare as a server platform.

At the end of the day you have to maintain the system. Go for what you
feel most comfortable with.

Cheers,

Dave

We SQLAnywhere with both NT and Netware. We have found that on Netware
it is simpler and quicker to get running right. But when SQLAnywhere
messes up on Netware it is bad! On NT I have had many problems
getting GPF's, DrWatson errors, and etc. It seems as though 5.5.02 is
more stable than previous version on NT.

IMHO for SQL Server I prefer NT over NetWare. Kernel threading for
Multiple Network Engines and SMP scalability to name a few.

Funnily: A word used to denote 'funny' by people spending too much time
examining the world using set based logic. ;-)

???

You're showing your parochialism here. "Funnily enough" is a colloquial
expression meaning oddly or curiously in many parts of the world.
Obviously not in Emeryville.
