I have to confess I have the uninterrupted bias and discrimination view to DBAs …

DBAs, they take the more critical roles in Enterprise IT, control the core business of gigantic companies, make big salary payment, and don't know how to program. 

In order to make wheels running, no matter how small job it is in the database, all these kind processes have to follow, escalate to level above another level, to get requirement assessed and approved, then trickle down level by another level, to a person who really could do the job, not just only good at passing the ball,  most time it is a junior DBA, and he is absence for holiday this week …

Enormously how many time application developers have to be so humble to use their warm faces to kiss DBAs cold arses in order to get job done. That is about 2 – 3 weeks later.

Now application developers have the revenge – H2 database

A database written by developers, written by programming language Java. It's Open Source, fast, SQL standard supported, Embedded into application, in Memory and standalone Server mode, clustering possible, and the most important, it has tiny carbon footprint. 

Basically, if you have web application or mobile application with "traditional" 3-tier architecture, needs persist data into a physical, non-volatile place, with less than a few thousands records, you really don't need these full blow version of MySQL and Oracle.

H2 database comes with application. There is NO intervene and business for DBAs. Developers have the full control of data structure design, implementation and access once application runs in production. 

Finally, there is a solution that developers could kiss DBAs cold arses good-bye forever and ever. Amen. » Read more: I have to confess I have the uninterrupted bias and discrimination view to DBAs …
