Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft SQL Server

MS SQL is used as a database(s) for the Symantec Management Platform. This basically means that it's used across the whole company as it holds data for all the supported machines. Moreover, the data for the DBs is used for reporting using MS SQL BI tools.
  • Great performance
  • Very easy to manage even for non-experienced users
  • MS SQL LocalDB is great if you're developer as it's very easy to use and it's free
  • Intellisense in management studio would be great improvement
  • Better GUI for LocalDB and SQL Express management
It has better support and it's a much more robust tool. Not to mention that it's a lot easier to manage.
I can't think of a scenario where the product wouldn't be appropriate to use. It scales so well that you can use it for tiny DBs, like for example if one does web development. It also works well with huge DBs that not only can hold a lot of data, but it can be queried with very reasonable speeds.
