This is a good comparison and I just want to point out that Sitefinity has significantly evolved since version 5.0, which was released in March 2012. The latest Sitefinity version is 7.3 and it was released in December 2014. Sitefinity has always supported following databases: Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL. See the system requirements: Kerberos Authentication is supported by Sitefinity. See this article: Sitefinity 7.2 introduced a complete system audit trail feature, which keeps login history for backend logins (see release timeline: Commercial Support is included with every Sitefinity license and there’s a free training session included with Enterprise licenses. Sitefinity 7.1 introduced an awesome recycle bin (trash) feature. See release timeline: Also, for e-commerce Sitefinity has great SEO functionality with SEO-friendly product urls, localization of urls and product descriptions, and the respective SEO meta data. It would be great if you can update the infographic to take this information into account.

With Umbraco you can use MySQL **OR** SQL Server
