Can someone point me to a good resource for best practices regarding Geographic Database configuration management.  I have a project that I want to be able to have a "master copy" of input datasets and their results and then allow a user to modify the datasets and generate new results with losing the original input datasets and their respective results.  Hope that makes sense.  Thank you.

So I'm thinking my question was probably too broad.  At this point, I'm thinking that we should move to an enterprise geodatabase sooner rather than later.  With that in mind, I know that ESRI can't recommend any particular one but does anyone out there have anything to say about Oracle vs SQL Server vs PostgresSQL/PostGIS?  I'm leaning towards the latter since it's open source but if either Oracle or SQL Server is far superior then we could argue for additional funds to go that route.  Any thoughts?  Recommendations?  White papers?  Thanks!
