SQL Server Review

Has high availability and good performance

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case is for data mining and processing data from plants. It's normally just for databases for the systems.

What is most valuable?

The availability is the most valuable feature. It has high availability. It also has good performance. 

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, it could use more integration with other products.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for around ten years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. We don't have any issues with stability or scalability. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have contacted support when we had Windows issues. They are okay, not the best but not the worst. They know what they're doing but they take a little too long. The response time isn't so good. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is mostly straightforward. The time it takes to deploy depends on the circumstances. It takes around three or four hours. 

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. It's a good product. I am satisfied with it. It's familiar, we've been using SQL for a while. 

I would rate it a nine out of ten. There's always room for improvement. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
