Extending btrott's well posted advice, I'd really look into Oracle... Apart from supporting transactions, you have very good security methods that you can implement on the database, like roles, table/field encryption, and SSL on the Oracle listeners.

The product itself is not that expensive anymore, considering that you can now purchase a 2 year license based on your CPU's frequency (license method called Universal Power Units).

HTH!
