Underlying RDBMS
pturnquist asked:
In your literature, I have not found what RDBMS underlies Westside Platform's database services, although you mention data import/export in Microsoft Access .mdb format.  Please kindly say what RDBMS Westside Platform uses internally.  
  tamram responded:
  Currently our underlying database is SQL Server running on Windows 2000. However, support for other RDBMS systems such as Oracle is under consideration and may be an option for customers who request it.

Either way, the underlying database is not currently exposed to the end user of the platform.
  pturnquist responded:
  Response within 13 minutes on Saturday is awesome.  Thanks!  Our immediate interest is scalability, in which SQL Server is reputedly as good as any RDBMS and therefore satisfactory.  We may, and some of your users certainly will, have a future need for revocable transactions.  It will be all right to program transactions by direct access to the RDBMS but preferable to do so via Westside's usual interface.  
  tamram responded:
  Thanks. We are aware of the need for transaction support and do plan to include it in a future version of the platform. If you have other technical concerns or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
