The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

Microsoft SQL Server

With Microsoft SQL Server I can quickly develop a data storage solution for a .NET web application. The built in Visual Studio tool makes choosing Microsoft SQL Server an easy choice for getting up and running quickly. However it does require a large footprint, and would not be well suited for small applications where a NOSQL or static database solution would be more efficient.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
Marc Gilbert profile photo
  • The patching has sometimes been an issue for us. It either doesn't work or the process isn't explained well for the different SQL instances on one engine.
  • I wish they would design a way to allow SQL backups to go somewhere other than a local drive. A UNC path would be best. This would allow us to rotate off the backups to a longer term storage device.
  • It takes up a huge amount of memory and space on a server.
  • There is no benefit to running it in VMWare. We typically find that servers run better in VMWare for our use cases but SQL seems to run just the same and you don't save on licensing so there really is no benefit.

We are a Microsoft Gold partner and are very in depth with our SQL server development with out software and it would take too many resources to try and switch to another database product, not to mention all of our clients run SQL Server so we would then have to support SQL and another product which is fiscally irresponsible.

I give it an 8 because it can be hard to start using without knowing some sort of SQL already. Having an understanding of relational databases and SQL queries would be a huge bonus for someone just starting out. But other than that it is great and there are always multiple methods to get to a result. Some people use a GUI and some just write SQL code to accomplish the same feat.

Make sure that all teams are fully represented in project meetings and planning. You'll need full involvement from networking, Windows, security, application teams, architects, and DBAs.
