In my testing with extremely heavy loads on limited hardware, Oracle and
MSSQL proved to be the most reliable - so long as the applications were
properly coded (and unfortunately, best performance was achieved using
non-ANSI SQL queries... :(

Anyway, PostgerSQL is a decent alternative that's similar enough to MySQL if
you're looking to port WPMU....
