It surprises me a bit that Oracle is not that popular.
We found out that SQL Server still lacks functionality that is present in Oracle, like e.g. consistent snapshot reading without locking the database.
In Oracle you can simply start a read-only translation, which will cause all subsequent queries to read from a snapshot without locking the database.
For our applications this is important since we need to load huge (and consistent) databases into memory in order to run simulations on it. Since other processes update the database at the same time, we don't want to lock the database to have this consistent view on it.
Apparently this functionality is standard in Oracle, while it can only be achieved in SQL Server by buying the very expensive Enterprise Edition (or at least I think this was the name).
Do some of you have this same problem or know a workaround for it on SQL Server?

Enjoy life, this is not a rehearsal !!!
