Microsoft SQL Server in a Nutshell
SQL Server is Microsoft’s relational database management system, which stores data used by applications and which can be queried using the industry-standard Structured Query Language (SQL). Not limited to merely storing and retrieving data on behalf of applications, SQL Server has been extended over the years to include SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS, for extract-transform-load operations), SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS, for generating data-based reports), and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS, for data mining). There are various editions of SQL Server, aimed at organizations of different sizes that have different requirements including the cloud-based Azure edition.
What can it do for me?
Data is critical to your business, so you want to entrust your data to a tried-and-tested database technology from a company with a long pedigree in the software industry. The company is Microsoft, and the database technology is SQL Server. For companies with an existing Microsoft bias, it may be something of a “no brainer” decision to choose SQL Server, but it also presents a very compelling proposition for all companies as a piece in your enterprise data jigsaw. This technology is secure, scalable, and highly available with up to 100% uptime. More than just a database, SQL Server is also your data reporting tool, online analytical processing, and business intelligence data mining solution.
