SQL Server Review

Installation is straightforward, flexible-to-use and it has secure functions

What is our primary use case?

I use SQL Server for .NET. We have ERP software in the background and we use the SQL Server for its creation.

What is most valuable?

SQL Server and their offers are very good. You can switch over, export, and do other things. I got access from users and it is very flexible to use.

What needs improvement?

SQL Server is technically good. For questions or other queries, we go through the internet and they explain it there. I think the structure of their product is good.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using SQL Server for one year and a month.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable. It was very easy for me to handle it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The free version of SQL Server is time-limited before updating to the paid version. So, sort of more access and more work in your database to help process most of the time. It's better to purchase it for more secure functions.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have a technical support engineer who handles maintenance and security for SQL Server. I think Microsoft's technical support is also very good.

How was the initial setup?

It's a straightforward installation. I installed SQL Server 2012, 2013 and 2016.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The usability of the free version is limited. They also have some guidelines on how to use the paid ones. You still have to check your IT requirements after purchasing it. We are using a licensed one right now, which has more functionality than the free version.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
