Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database server, developed by Microsoft: It is a software
product whose primary function is to store and retrieve data as requested by other software applications,
be it those on the same computer or those running on another computer across a network (including the Internet).
There are at least a dozen different editions of Microsoft SQL Server aimed at different audiences and for
different workloads (ranging from small applications that store and retrieve data on the same computer, to
millions of users and computers that access huge amounts of data from the Internet at the same time).
My experience with SQL Server includes:
- Using it for web applications where a database is required.
- Using it for applications that require more power than MS Access can provide.
- Customizations to existing applications that use SQL Server.
- Generating reports using SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS).
