As we add more features and data sources to our ETL software the testing requirements become more complex. One day we realized that we need a standard database for testing ETL processes. It will allow us to compare Data transformation performance across various databases and our users make a conscious decision on which database to use.  After some research, we have decided to port the MySQL Sakila sample database to Oracle, SQL Server, Interbase/Firebird and Access. (more databases to follow).  It was already ported to Postgres but scripts for deleting data and dropping tables we missing. 

The first release of the port is completed and can be downloaded from the google code web site

Sakila is a serious sample database, with tons of data, and a number of views, stored procedures, triggers and functions to allow you to really explore and test all the various features of MySQL.
