Oracle RDBMS on Windows (32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows has become an increasingly popular platform for the deployment of database applications. The challenges to doing this successfully can be considerable. Database applications must simultaneously provide high performance, reliability, and scalability, all at a low total cost of ownership. Oracle Database 10g on Windows provides these capabilities.
