I have administered SDE and designed enterprise GIS in both Oracle and SQL Server. 17 years ago when I got my Oracle Master Certificate, I used to consider SQL Server nothing more than a beefed up Access database. Things have changed.
There are new capabilities in SQL Server which have had such a fundamental impact on geodatabase management that has forced even Esri to adopt SQL Server for its standards. Oracle spatial was released with Oracle 7. Since then, no one else, neither Esri, MapInfo, SmallWorld, Autodesk nor Google has adopted Oracle spatial. SQL Server was released April 2012.
Let me recommend you to take a look at this review: sql-server-vs-oracle-bdms-comparison.
