Thoughts On Running Oracle 10g On Apple OSX Server
June 21, 2004
Mark Rittman

With Oracle Database 10g nearing release date for Apple OSX Server, Oracle and Apple are running a series of joint seminars in Reston, Cupertino, London, Paris and Tokyo to introduce this first supported release of the Oracle RDBMS on the Apple platform.

All I need now is some kind company to loan me a Mac G5 to put it through it's paces :-) Seriously, I'd love to get a Mac but at around 3000 for a reasonable setup, it's just too expensive. Whilst Oracle 10g on OSX Server is probably aimed at organisations looking to use the G5 XServe (which pound for pound stacks up better against commodity Intel hardware) it's a shame that G5 towers cost so much compared to comparable machines from companies like Dell.

As an aside, I was looking at used G4 towers on Ebay, which with dual 1.00 Ghz processors, a 17" studio display and around 512MB of RAM are going for around 1000 (US$1832). How well do these run OSX and how much of improvement are the new G5 towers? Are they still very noisy? Would you run Oracle 10g on them? Any advice would be appreciated.
