We are using SQL Server from 2014 and highly impressed with its simplicity and how its growing its capability with every version. server is a great database server with lots of features that are must for small or large scale companies. part is its user interface and simple to use.It is enabling developers to build their logic with intelligent window as well.

What do you dislike?

We are not using any training for now as most of the features are free. Thank you Microsoft. I loved this platform. I dislike the only one thing is that licencing is too costly for small companies.

We are very satisfied with software and we recommend it for completely safe and secure DBMS architecture.

"Best enterprise level database for development."

What do you like best?

MS SQL has been around long enough and has enough distribution that there is a tremendous amount of information out there for any situation that you might encounter. If you can ask the correctly you can find the answer. It's relatively tolerant to crashes and can be scaled to any size or cluster configuration needed. Lots of add ons available as well as tools for optimization and troubleshooting.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft's pricing has become borderline esoteric in it's level of complexity. SQL is now priced by CORE (not Proc), which can make it very expensive and confusing to license. It also needs proper tuning in order to work well - a small tweak can have huge performance issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider full price of ownership - you may need a consultant or full time administrator. Don't skimp on the hardware portion - you may need powerful machines to run the implementation - depending on your user load and type of implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run our ERP system on it and because it's SQL we have been able to customize the system to the level we need. Not a painless process, but it works. Because of the simplicity in connecting outside data I'm able to write connections to our Salesforce CRM to keep the two systems in sync. It's relatively easy to virtualize and run through cloud platforms as well.

"my experience with sql server has been very good and productive"

What do you like best?

One of the things we like most about sql server is being able to work in client-server mode, which allows the information and data to be hosted on the server and for clients or network terminals to only access the information. Also, thanks to the fact that it is a tool that has been on the market for many years, it offers a powerful graphical administration environment, giving us a tool to perform ddl and dml commands graphically. It is very stable and secure and has a good community around it.

What do you dislike?

What to my point of view I see more unfavorable of this database tool is its high use of RAM memory in the use of the software, also for this reason it becomes slow at the time of installation if you do not have adequate resources. Also its price taking into account its competitors makes it a more expensive solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What I would recommend to other users is that if you want to implement a robust and reliable database and have a good team and the budget is not a problem, do not hesitate to use sql server

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The project in which we implemented this database manager was the migration of some data from Oracle database and its interface to create ddl and dml commands in a graphical way and the ease of use allowed us to reduce considerably the time of execution of the migration.

SQL Server is best database server to working with microsoft technologies like MVC, Dotnet, WCF and etc.

It Is provide the verious functionalities like create database and tables to create stored procedure, functions and views etc. It is also provide SSRS and SSIS features.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft SQL Server is made to support millions of records across an enterprise. Because of its robust technology, it also comes with a high price.

Users also need to learn different language to setup microsoft sql environment.

SQL Server requires the .NET framework installed on a machine, which is a separate component used by developers.

"my experience with sql server is very rewarding "

What do you like best?

What I like most about sql server is its ease of use thanks to its powerful graphical administration environment which allows you to make DDL and DML commands in a graphical way. Besides its great scalability, stability and security, it is a very mature product and has a very good community.

It also allows to work in client server mode, which allows to host the information and data in the server and the clients or terminals of the network only access the information.

What do you dislike?

What makes sql server unfavorable is the high use of ram memory for both the installation and the use of the software and the value for money compared to competitors such as oracle.

As for the implementation another unfavorable thing is that it only has support with windows operating system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What I would recommend to other users is that if you want a robust and reliable database and have enough budget do not hesitate to use sql server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The project consists of migrating a visual fox pro database and since it is an e-commerce page we need a robust and reliable database, also as the team was small we need to work with the tools that allow us to move forward as quickly and simply as possible and for that reason sql server helped me a lot thanks to its simple interface to use.

Esta aplicacion realmente cumple con las espectativas de la empresa, actualmente la usamos como repositorio de los sistemas administrativos que actualmente usamos, amigable y sobre todo robusta, con solo crear un scrip puedo incluir, modificar y hasta eliminar información errada cargada por los analistas (no solo de sistemas si no de otras areas) Les recomiendo antes de hacer cualquier tipo de modificación crear un respaldo de la Base de datos por seguridad, realizar las revisiones las tablas las cuales afecta esa modificación y sobre todo tener claro que deseas realizar. Por otro lado, Tiene gran soporte de transacciones y su entorno grafico te permite tener una mejor vision de lo que realizas.

"Data Warehouse Programmer"

What do you like best?

Team Microsoft;

I cannot thank you enough for the flawless technical support that you’ve given me over the last couple of weeks.The titles that you created (Matthew) for the Power BI presentation were a big hit; and the Power BI dashboard extravaganza unfolded on cue with perfect precision. My colleagues were as impressed with me as I am with you. You also did a marvelous job researching the Vice President and CFO questions (Mark) and I know that I didn’t always give you much to go on and recommending exactly software for their preferences. Without your help, I don’t think I could have met the short but urgent deadline. Regarding all for the SQL Server on Microsoft Azure Public Cloud Platform Provider.

I feel much better knowing that I have such a valuable and capable resource a phone call away.

Respectfully yours;

Thanks,

What do you dislike?

"Powerful database with a really good and intuitive editor. "

What do you like best?

Creation, administration and management of the database is really easy, even for beginners. It is fast and stable and it works good with other Microsoft products. I feel right at home when I'm using SQL Server Management Studio. It has a practical UI and of course a really helpful intellisense feature. The problems which my team and I solve require fast response and fast solutions and Microsoft SQL is of great help with that.

What do you dislike?

The price of the enterprise package might be too high for smaller companies, but I think that Microsoft's target with this product are large organizations/corporations (like mine).

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a product aimed at big companies/corporations with a lot of users and big databases. If you are a small company/team, there are some other more practical solutions. It is rather easy to use and highly practical. I need to stress again how fast Microsoft SQL is - that might a be big factor for some teams like mine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team handles a major part in administration and management of the database for one of the big US supermarket chains. Without getting into too many details, we run a lot of scripts and queries through thousands of items and transactions in order to find the cause of problems and bugs which happen during customer interactions with the Self checkouts. The speed and ease of use which Microsoft SQL is offering help us a lot and allows us to quickly pinpoint the issues.

"SQL server - A robust database tool"

What do you like best?

To manage all of our data of various customer products, we use sql server. This is a microsoft product, so we are much satisfied with product service.

It is very reliable and easy to use tool.

We can store, process and execute very large amount of data.

Very easy to learn its programming language.

Very great features such as SQL server agent, profiler, reporting etc..

One can use for all his needs of database.

What do you dislike?

Every good tool has its own limitations.

First of all its cost. It is very high.

We need good amount of RAM to properly use this. Sometimes query stucks in between. But our organization provides a great RAM, so we don't have any issue with its speed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this tool from past 8 years. I use to manage data feom various products of my company. It is very easy to learn and manage.

I highly recommend this rdbms tool to everyone.

"Feature rich, highly tunable"

What do you like best?

The query analyzer is a great tuning tool. The ability to embed really anything in a stored proc or an agent job is nice for integrating other systems or using it to manage workflows. Great tools for diagnosing production issues like deadlocks

What do you dislike?

The Intellisense doesn't keep up with your changes in the editor. There should be some kind of really good visual tool for building queries. Permissions management is a real chore. It would be nice to have some way to express business logic as a set of rules rather than just write it as t-sql in sored procs, something more analyst-friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at the size you need to scale to, Microsoft SQL gets very expensive at scale.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it as the hub to move data across enterprise systems )financials, CRM, ERP, etc.). The SSO database is used to encrypt environment-specific meta data (passwords, logons, addresses, etc.).

"Microsoft SQL On Everything"

What do you like best?

Over the years, Microsoft finally figured out that MS SQL should run in more places - not just in Windows Server, but regular Windows and now Linux. So now you can just run whatever your platform is, and put MS SQL on it. It even has support for Macs if you can get through that process too.

The management platform is probably one of the most user friendly out there. Click, set this up, add a table, call it a day.

What do you dislike?

Some things are still esoteric, and you'll have to start looking up basic things. Like "Why can't I log into the machine and need a Windows account" or "How do I do auto-increment"? It's not difficult to figure out, but it's things that should have a "Hi, if you're using this for the first time, these are some things to look for."

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you have the instructions laid out. While it's easier than ever to install Microsoft SQL, that doesn't mean if you're running Linux or Mac that everything will just go right. Make sure you have the right versions, patches, and the like before you proceed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I tend to use it because my clients do. In this case, a client had a custom CRM, and they ran it on SQL. Since there's enough plugins from PHP and C# into MS SQL, it wasn't that hard to make a connection so I could get the data I needed and plug it into the program.

"Practical and easy database manager"

What do you like best?

With my experience in the use of Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) produced by Microsoft dodne Its main query language is Transact-SQL, It can also include a powerful graphical administration environment, which allows the use of DDL and DML commands graphically. It contains stability and security scalability, it also allows to work in client-server mode, where information and data are hosted on the server and terminals or clients of the network only access information. It also allows to work in client-server mode, where the information and data are hosted on the server and the terminals or clients of the network only access the information.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that its main disadvantages would be that it contains a large amount of RAM for the installation and use of the software. Also it only has support with Windows operating system but by experience in chat or forums of microsoft are incorporating linux for this manager in his last updates of the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my case, I must implement this database manager for having applications that use it, I must say that it is a handler that facilitates transactions support, fulfills its functions and the truth is very stable and at the time of backups it is also robust.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have third-party applications that should use only this SQL Server database manager, it would be the main benefit since without that manager the applications that we have in the organization do not run.

"Microsoft Sql Server "

What do you like best?

Very efficient RDBMS and attractive GUI based database. It allows you to modify almost every interface from the UI. I like the poweful profiler provided by Microsoft sql server that is really amazing tool for debugging the real time production issues. Profiler works as a last resort some time for fixing potentia production issues.

What do you dislike?

Does not clear up space directly after deleting the records from table and you will need to perform operations to free up the actual space on the server. Consumer much memory on the database server so designated server is must for MS Sql server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sql server is really a efficient RDBMS system to handle middle to large amount of data efficiently. I always recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data management for our web application and reporting system. This is fast and excellent database and also has all required functionality.

"Great application and the best DB solution"

What do you like best?

His main tool SQL Server Management Studio it’s a great solution for DBA or Technology group, his GUI minimize tasks like backup, restore, change passwords or change security settings. For me as part of a security department it's important to audit a change user privileges with a single click. Another benefit allows us integration with other solutions (like antivirus, CRM, etc) with local solutions and cloud solutions.

For less known users try free version, then you can decided what to buy. Be part of Microsoft solutions it’s a plus, allowing us to do task with server configuration and upgrade without issues.

What do you dislike?

His price could be a pain for IT departments, if you compared against other product or free editions. Sometimes customer support take too much time to solve an issue, it’s annoying that issue only can be solved by patching. You need an experienced Microsoft Partner to deploy large environments, those partners increase licensing and services price allot. As users we need better services with lower prices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For me the most important it’s do test on a free environment, evaluate if all your products are compatible with this solution and then contact an experienced partner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More than a problem it's a solution for daily task and a secure environment to deploy all our services (antivirus, security, crm, etc).

"MS SQL"

What do you like best?

Microsoft SQL has been a mainstay in data base query management for many years. It comes as no surprise that most companies with multiple systems will use Microsoft SQL to ease in searching, joining, table management and expect fast response times.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft SQL Enterprise pricing has grown steadily over the years along with the processing power needed to run all of the different applications it supports.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have a qualified Microsoft SQL Expert on your team, its well worth the additional expense to utilize a 3rd party or even Microsoft Professional services to assist in the setup of the database plus all of the connectors, monitors, tasks, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use SQL in finance, HR and Production. We would not be able to function as a company without Microsoft SQL as all of the connectors, login credentials and user interfaces would easily be supported by an alternative means.

"Microsoft SQL"

What do you like best?

The full capabilities of all MSQL and being able to set up in a short time. We use this across multiple servers and services. It is a good and stable product and can easily be backed up and restored when needed. I know there are other database solution available and cheaper but for us it is seamless with all of our front end solutions.

What do you dislike?

Like most people the cost of having a full version up and running, because of the need and support for this product we have to pay for our use of the product. This is really the only think at this time that I do not like about this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just be prepared for the sticker shock of using it for large database. It definitely is the cost of doing business. It is a good and stable product and can easily be backed up and restored when needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have 40 SQL servers up and running. We have been using a single instance of SQL to run multiple Smaller databases without impact. We have been able to backup and move databases in MSQL flawlessly with out having to have more support than needed.

"SQL 2016 - Support for HealthCare Apps"

What do you like best?

With thousands of claims we receive every day, SQL handles the claims load, validation and applying business rules like a pro.

Also, with the help of SSRS we deliver a lot of reports to our clients on a daily basis.

What do you dislike?

Not much of dislikes but one thing that my client is worried about is Enterprise edition licensing cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your application wants to use the latest parallelism concept then the Microsoft SQL Server max degree of parallelism configuration option controls the number of processors that are used for the execution of a

query in a parallel plan. We have implemented this on a 10 core machine which boosted to 20 core.

With InMemory online transaction processing and AlwaysOn Availability my client is very happy with the performance issues.

Also, the PowerBI tool gives a great option of showing the real time reporting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WIth SQL fail over server we are pretty sure that the database is never down.

"SQL Server : Excellent Data Storage And Analyzing Tool"

What do you like best?

The ease of integration with any application. The ease of data access and usability. The ease of adding of removing users. Securing different access levels for each user. Ease of training for new employees.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of right now. Overall really good experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall an excellent tool for data gathering and visualization. Excellent support and large user community.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft SQL Server is an excellent tool for any sort of applications. I have used it extensively for multiple web applications where relationships between the tables is needed. Overall capability of the server is very extensive and deep. The Analysis services feature is so great, it allows us to analyze more than Terabytes of data within seconds. The in-built user management system is great too, very few lines of personal code needs to be written to use that. In early days we used to leverage DTS processes too, which helped us analyze large chunks of data. The ease of use and access is peerless. Most the time we have to transfer data between multiple servers and the concept of Linked servers have helped us to achieve that.

The ability to have the product provide the t-sql for actions when you may want to run a process multiple times and would just rather automate it with a maintenance plan. The ability to integrate with other products is a great plus and being able to provide users with reports that they can understand.

What do you dislike?

Performance monitoring is sometimes vague, and slow. Some details can be confusing when first working with the product. It would also be nice if the SQL Management studio install did not feel like it was buried or hidden away and had a simpler installer for when not working on the actual SQL box.

Recommendations to others considering the product

MS SQL is a great tool and there are a lot of resources on the web that can be used when first getting into it. Since the community behind the application is so larger 9 times out of 10 users of MS SQL can find answer rather quickly or work together to find a solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SQL is used in the background of applications that I use at work. Just having the ability to use the enterprise version helps with speed and being able to provide a faster response to certain queries.

"One of the best solutions for database management system. "

What do you like best?

-His compatibility with enterprise software that needs DB integration, this environment allows us to integrate (locally or cloud) all our solutions on the main server with cluster functionality.

-As a Microsoft product, it’s easier to upgrade on Windows Server versions, even security patch is compatible with OS environment.

-SQL Server Management Studio it’s a great solution to DBA or IT departments, his GUI allow less known users to do tasks like backup, restore, change passwords or change security settings.

-If you want to run some test, there is a free version with some limitations like database size (10GB for SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014 & SQL Server 2012).

-As a massive product, it’s easy to implement security solutions compatible with any version of SQL and any version of Windows Server.

What do you dislike?

-As other Microsoft products, SQL Server price it’s huge compared against other similar products. They have two options for licensing (Core or CAL).

-In my company the customer support it’s not the best of all the Microsoft products, sometimes they solve the problem only with a patch and do not help with a temporary solution.

-If you have more than 10 instances on the same server running at the same with a high rate of transactions per second it’s important to work with a Microsoft Partner. There is a high RAM consumption that needs to be customized and adapted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It’s important to configure all the details available, if you need contact a DBA or train you IT personal with Microsoft certifications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As IT department we use SQL as the main database software for all our products (CRM, Financials, HR, security, etc).

"Endless Opportunities and High Availability"

What do you like best?

The best features of SQL Server is the amount of flexibility one can implement. With such high flexibility, once can assure business that SQL Databases will "Always" remain available without any/very minimal downtime. With the implementation of Always On High Availability groups, log shipping and replication, one can rest assured that data loss will be very minimal even in case of heavy disasters. Being a Microsoft Development House, SQL Server also suits our needs very well providing easy and maintainable data management.

What do you dislike?

Administering SQL Server can be quite difficult at first, especially If you would like to build a top notch platform and not just deploy a single server. Fortunately, there is a lot of documentation available on the web for guidance and advise.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure that at least one dedicated person in your team has a good knowledge of SQL Server administration as it can be quite difficult to maintain a healthy and secure server for an inexperienced user.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically it provides a data management platform where all our applications (both built in house or purchased from a third part supplier) store and mange their data. We can ensure that such data is kept available to the business at all times.

"SQL Server Database review"

What do you like best?

I really like the improved reliability, better performance , reduced network traffic and increased scalability. The database can be easily stream lined and installation is hassle free.The security features are better and can efficiently manager my log and data files.Aslo , it integration with Visual studio is another huge advantage to acess Databse while coding in C#.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the increased deployment cost and more complex support environment, with no IT support staff(in house) than is simpler access. It also cost more to implement than does access and deployment of a sql server system will take longer and cost more than an equivalent Acess system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Open source product would be better

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I typically used to maintain the database for identity and access management soltutions for my corporation. To scheduled automated monthly jobs, reporting , querying and production support.

Provides good interface and intelligence help to write queries easily.

What do you dislike?

Installation takes more time.

Due to many features included in SQL Server, it takes large memory and some times it slows down.

You need to refresh many times.

Sql Server supports multiple inputs type like XML and JSON and process them per requirements. It has powerful tools like SQL query optimiser and resource monitor. Sql server has set of pre-defined user functions which helps in writing complex queries. Supports reporting services(SSRS) and integration services(SSIS) for data migration packages. It also supports the Hadoop integration now to exchange data between sql server and Hadoop.

What do you dislike?

Consumes very huge amount of resources on production server. When handling very large data update, it becomes unresponsive and you have to kill it by rebooting the server.

"Microsoft SQL Server Serving the Masses"

What do you like best?

MS SQL Server is a robust, well-established relational database manager. Support for it exists in so many forms. Microsoft of course provides the primary source as the producer and ultimate authority on the product. However, there is an abundance of forums, blogs and users groups with a wealth of information, whether you need to troubleshoot an error, solve a problem or what tips and shortcuts for everyday tasks.

What do you dislike?

It's a Catch-22. For all of the prestige of being so feature rich and robust, it is a complex product with many nuances that differ from the version in the year 2000 to today. Managing the change and keeping up require real effort and occasionally it's best just to pay an expert.

Let's talk about licensing. If major re-sellers have people whose title and sole purpose is Microsoft Licensing Specialist, then things have gotten out of hand.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you don't have the expertise in house, look carefully bringing in a consultant to set it up right the first time. It will work with default settings but a few hours with an expert can save a lot of time

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our primary line of business programs run on Microsoft SQL Server. It is a foundational component of our IT infrastructure and is not implemented to solve problems so much as it carries the load. You could say it solves the problem of needing a fully stable platform upon which to run the business.

"A robust transactional database, tried and true"

What do you like best?

If you are working from scratch, it's relatively easy to set up a new database server and connectivity between clients. Everything is pretty much straightforward, given that you have some database knowledge. The DBMS allows you to easily create several things entirely in design (tables, views, etc) - which is a big plus when you don't know the entire syntax.

What do you dislike?

Some of the setups of older versions (2008 - 2012) are rather clunky and not very well made - I have had several instances of my installer being corrupt and having to redownload. The database administrator is, at some times, slow to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider all available replìcation scenarios, as newer versions contain even better features (SQL Always On, comes to mind) where log shipping or others may not be necessary.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the transactional data for our customer is handled in Microsoft SQL. The customer requires a high availability and quick response system; where SQL helps in.

"Mona_Review"

What do you like best?

-You don’t need any coding in SQL. This means by using standard SQL you can easily manage database systems, no need to write a substantial amount of code.

-It is Portable. By this term, I mean to data portability. SQL supports PCs, laptop, tablets, servers, mainframes. We can run SQL on a local system with intranet and internet. We can easily move the database using SQL from one device to another.

-Well Defined Standards. SQL database uses an established standard, that is being used by ANSI (American National Standard Institutes) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization).

Multiple Data Views.

Using SQL language users can make different views of the database structure for the different users.

-Interactive Language. We can use this language for communication with the database. With this, we can get answers to complex queries in a few seconds.

What do you dislike?

Partial Control. Due to the hidden business rules, programmers using SQL doesn’t have full control over the database.

Cost. There are some SQL versions which have high operating cost, so it creates difficulty for some programmers to access those versions.

Interface. SQL has a complex interface that creates difficulty for some user to access it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, I would like to.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-As the name SQL implies (SQL stands for Structured Query Language) databases are designed to retrieve exactly the data you need at a given time.

-You can achieve similar results by using filters and lookup formulas, but the power of SQL will win especially with large data sets.

-Excel works very well when you have simple data structures (rows and columns), but they start to fall down when you have complicated data structures that require an unspecified number of related records. -SQL allows/requires you to model your data in related tables and allows very complex data relationships.

"Awesome Tool"

What do you like best?

SQL server is simply so staggeringly amazing, most clients likely don't have a clue the amount it can do, or the amount it can deal with. It is my most loved software to utilize on the grounds that the potential outcomes for query-writing are perpetual. It gives reinforcement to all your put away information into it, by this there is no stress of loosing your information.

Versitality is brilliant, however not the best, as other new databases in the market. The memory utilization of the CPU is in every case more than ordinary in the creation explicitly by the SQL server. Extent of improvement in the profile generator for the most utilized choices.

"Professional solution for enterprise-wide data management"

What do you like best?

Microsoft SQL server can be used in a wide variety of applications and as the backend of an active application. Storing and retrieving huge varieties of data in SQL server is easy and highly scalable and the transact capabilities of the SQL server ensure that if a data is not updated at the other end due to any network failures or other such issues, this doesn't lead to loss of data on either side.

What do you dislike?

Microsoft SQL server is best utilized when installed on a windows NT family of operations systems(windows server 2016,windows server 2012) simply due to the number of simultaneous connections the base OS can handle. Installing Microsoft SQL server on a client operating system such as Win 7 or Win 10 enterprise, does reduce the performance of the SQL server. Managing small amounts of data may not be affected much by this, but large enterprises should prefer using the latest hardware and a Server OS for using SQL server but this would add up the cost of operations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SQL server is primarily used as a backend of the various applications that are hosted in our environment and also hosts a majority of the company's client data. The client data is secured and hosted on SQL server databases that has multiple mirror backups that act as DR servers. This ensures that the client data is always available with zero downtime in cases of any man-made or natural disasters.

"A complete solution for all you database needs."

What do you like best?

One of the key feature of Microsoft SQL Server is its installation which is very straight Forward nothing fancy which makes the developer or the user aware of whats this going to install and check and uncheck its feature accordingly.

Other Microsoft SQL Server which I like the most is its prices which are very competitive and cost efficient. And I can tell you this it will bring down your overall cost of operation. So choose wisely.

After all this product come directly from MS performance and security are least concerned issues.

What do you dislike?

On the things which personally I don't like is its humongous size which it take during installation on disk.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, as a user of Microsoft SQL I'd Definitely suggest SQL to my peers and colleagues who are looking for solution in that direction.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Due it efficiency and performance the time takes to execute complex operation is comparatively low. Cost effective.
