Part two uses a 50 gig CRM database on a 6 way box with 8 gig of ram attached to a SAN. That is due out in a couple of days.

Don't forget mentioning there are other options.

We use SQL Zip, as SQL Lite speed had issues with Named Instances.  I belive this has been corrected, but dealing with the tecnical support staff was extremely painful.

Based on our tests SQL Zip ( www.sqlzip.com ), performed just as well, and only cost 500.00 per server.

Also support from SQL Lite speed was difficult, and there were issues with the documentation not matching the product features.

SQL Lite Speed has lots of advertising flash and industry support from magazines and such, but didn't deliver the goods based on the price.

I was not aware of SQL Zip at the time of this article or I would have included it for sure. I have used SQL LiteSpeed in our sql farm for quite a while and never had an issue with named instances at all. I don't have my two proc machine setup to rerun the test but my 6-way server is still loaded If I get some free time I'll run the same test with SQL Zip and post it here.

I'd like to see a feature\price comparison matrix.  Speed and compression are not as important to me since backups are done off hours and disk space is cheap.  The native backup that comes with SQL Server meets all my needs except the ability to restore selected tables.  I hate having to restore a whole 100 gig database just to get a 1 meg table.  I wonder what other features could be useful.

Not all products offer a public listing of prices. I agree a matrix of features would have been nice, there is always next time . The only product tested to do table level restores was SQL LiteSpeed the time this article was written.

SQL Litespeed will go to tape directly.
