Comercial Database Management Systems

What do you mean, you want to pay for software and not get the source code, then have to rely on paying support from the companies which isn't very responsive, yet you don't like the idea of having the source code which you can modify yourself to fix those problems?

Okay, I know, I know... Here you go.

Sybase FAQ - Frequently asked questions and answers on Sybase
Oracle - Very popular RDBMS
