  IMPORTANT NOTICE

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management suite aiming to facilitate and ease data warehousing and application development. It is a cloud-ready platform, which means organizations can benefit from protection while deploying and synchronizing data across desktops and modern devices.

SQL Server’s high rate of success is mostly due to its power to store and then retrieve data for third-party software that rely on it to successfully manage information inside databases. Another advantage is brought by the advanced security features that protect critical workloads from unauthorized access.

Built to satisfy a wide array of audiences, Microsoft SQL Server is available in multiple editions, each targeting a different purpose. The most popular are SQL Server Enterprise, which aside from the core engine, includes a rich list of add-ons and extensive processor support, followed by SQL Server Standard, which features support for fewer instances and is addressed to medium level businesses. The most recent of the editions is Business Intelligence, which includes memory analytics and focuses on Self Service.

Perhaps one of the most important features is provided by the server to cloud technology, which is a quick and trustworthy architecture for flexible application deployment. Furthermore, data synchronization is facilitated through scenarios that involve Windows Azure SQL Database Data Sync, which accomplishes bi-directional communication between the datacenter and the cloud.

Microsoft SQL Server delivers amazing uptimes and undeniable performance, virtues confirmed by the various industries that use it as a basis for developing highly reliable platforms. Downtimes are minimized and application availability is enhanced with the aid of the integrated disaster recovery solution, which prevents companies from wasting money on third-party backup solutions.

Developers, as well as end users gain in-depth insight through the data exploration and visualization capabilities, which are delivered via a browser-based approach. Collaboration and sharing, as well as reporting are facilitated through a collection of tools that integrate inside Excel and SharePoint.

In conclusion, Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most reliable database technologies that delivers blazing fast performance and scalability, making itself available in a variety of editions for all types of audiences.
