Choosing DATABASE for TD Application?
This question is in regards on how to choose a database for a TD project.
I know TD supports Access, Oracle, Sybase but
is there a reason why a particular database should be chosen.
If so why or why not?
Re: Choosing DATABASE for TD Application?
Oracle and Sybase would support more concurrent users, with better performances, than Access.
Access databases are easier to back-up and restore (many users use Oracle or Sybase for active projects and Access for old projects or for back-up purposes).
Access databases for TestDirector are free of charge (you do not have to have Access to use them with TestDirector; of course, it is preferable to have Access if you want to... access them directly).
Access is not supported by TestDirector for Quality Center which, in the long run, will replace TestDirector.
If your budget allows it, go for Oracle.
