While starry-eyed Unix buffs born only yesterday or the day before believe implicitly in the feasibility and imminent availability of true distributed databases, those who have been around for a month or two remain highly sceptical because they have at least a glimmer of an idea of the enormous complexity involved – and the latter will therefore not be in the least surprised that Oracle Corp’s SQL*Star distributed database will be months late because, the company says, of architectural changes needed to increase the power of the Personal Computer component of the system; the optimists will take comfort from the fact that Relational Technology Inc maintains that its own distributed product, Ingres/Star, will be shipped in March.
