Q

Can Oracle and SQL Server run alongside one another?

Can an Oracle database run alongside a MS SQL Server database on the same physical server given that hardware requirements are sufficient?

Sure. Since you say if "hardware requirements are sufficient", then you've hit the nail on the head. You'll need plenty of box to handle both and you may run into performance problems and contention since Oracle and SQL Server manage memory and I/O differently. It can be done, but it wouldn't be my first choice if I could help it. :)
