Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft SQL Server

Over in IT we use [Microsoft] SQL Server as our primary RDBMS across the entire department. We have a handful of legacy oracle databases which are yet to be retired and are planned to switch over to [Microsoft] SQL Server. [Microsoft] SQL Server is the database behind all of our software application systems essentially and is how we maintain and store all of our application data.

Pros

  • Extremely reliable
  • Great interface via SSMS
  • Fast operations
  • Atomicity

Cons

  • A better debugging experience
  • More built in support for logging
  • Better diagram generation
  • Reliability for data storage
  • ACID transactions
  • Fast operations
  • User friendly interface via SSMS
  • Huge ROI in allowing us to develop our applications and as our primary store of data
[Microsoft] SQL Server has a much better community and professional support and is overall just a more reliable system with Microsoft behind it. I've used MySQL in the past and SQL Server has just become more comfortable for me and is my go to RDBMS.
