At the premier of the first ever database movie “The Relational Chainsaw Massacre”, the crowd is waiting for the stars to arrive:
The first limousine arrives and out steps Oracle followed by 4 people
Interviewer: Who have you brought along?
Oracle: I have 4 DBA’s in tow. One to install me, one to design the databases, one to administer me and the other to justify the cost.
A second limo arrives and out steps DB2 followed by 40 people
Interviewer: Who have you bought along?
DB2: I have 2 DBA’s, 2 hardware specialist and 36 consultants.
Another limo arrives and out steps SQL Server all on his own
Interviewer: Why haven’t you brought anyone?
SQL Server: I didn’t bring anyone because I am easy to install and am basically self managing. But I did bring this URL for sqlteam when the shit hits the fan.
