Today someone pointed a good link out to me. I have been looking at SQL Server a bit recently to understand some of the security issues and how they compare to Oracle. I was looking for something that compares the features and functions of Oracle to SQL Server. This paper titled "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 for the Oracle Professional
" describes the differences and similarities in areas such as definitions of what a database is, the catalogs, security and roles, physical storage, parameters etc. This is a great paper that allows us Oracle bods to see how and where to look in SQL Server for the similar parts and features.
