IBM also announced that Oracle Corp’s Oracle Version 6 relational database was now available under AIX Unix on the PS/2, with enhancements over the version originally announced. The transaction processing option includes a new concurrency control mechanism, the Row Lock Manager, with row level locking and row level multi-versioning. SQL*DBA, included in the database, is an interactive administration and performance analysis utility that can be used to manage local and remote nodes. AIX PS/2 1.1 one to 16-user option, is required to support more than two Oracle users, and SQL*Plus, SQL*Forms, SQL*Menu and SQL*Net Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol are separately charged. Oracle costs a one-time $2,000 for one user, $1,000 more to add up to seven users, $3,000 more to go from nine to 16 users (that’s $6,000 for nine users or more). SQL*Plus on the same basis is $500, $250 and $750; SQL*Forms, $600, $300 and $900; SQL*Menu $300, $150 and $450; SQL*Net TCP/IP $700, $350 and $1,050; Pro*C is $300, $150 and $450; and Pro*Fortran is $300, $150 and $450. Oracle 6 for AIX PS/2 shipped yesterday.
