SQL Server Review

It solved really complex situations

What is most valuable?

  • Net integration is best for me
  • Better optimizer
  • Ease of use (admin tools)

How has it helped my organization?

We used this to solve many complex problems.

What needs improvement?

Overall, trying to make over with Oracle, it can be improved in usage for high data migration companies of large scale.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have experience using both the versions of SQL Server 2008, 2012 for more than two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Never had issues with stability, may be we were handling structured data well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, federal vs clusters approach explains you well that you can search for them.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support rating would be around a seven and a half out of 10.

How was the initial setup?

Setup is easy as what we want the database to do for our problems, compared to Oracle latest versions you need to spend more time on the initial setting up where these cannot go wrong with partitioning and indexing and it needs to be perfect.

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

Go for SQL and compare it with pricing and stability with other Microsoft products.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Definitely yes, with Oracle only if the needed situations cannot be met, mostly it covers better.

What other advice do I have?

Best practices are the always a better choice for implementing the solution, hire a good expert and consult a better person with huge experience in architecting database systems for decades.
