SQL Server Review

Stable, scalable, and good integration services


What is most valuable?

The columnstore index feature is useful for us, and we also use the integration services. It is also very stable.

What needs improvement?

We would like to have a common storage option in the SQL Server. This option is available in Oracle Database. It would be great if Microsoft could create something like a columnstore that has not only indexing but also tables for common storage.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using SQL Server for four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is pretty stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

If we talk about just standard RDBMS, it is very scalable because we don't have to scale platforms.

How are customer service and technical support?

All communication with Microsoft technical support is done by our internal support group. I'm not communicating with them directly. I guess their technical support is okay and fast.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend SQL Server as a solution for a medium enterprise or a small business.

I would rate SQL Server an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

2016
