Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.""Since we are a cloud-based company, there is AWS pricing on top of the SQL Server pricing. The Enterprise Edition can typically sell from around $1000 dollars a month, which is not cheap. Then, there is an additional one-time Windows cost, based on the code, which can go anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000 for the license.""SQL Server is a cost-effective solution for a small database.""Pricing is reasonable for small organizations, but the scaling increases the price.""We didn't have any licensing costs for SQL Server.""We pay approximately $12,000 USD per month for both the server and the license.""The price could be cheaper."

SQL Server is the Microsoft-driven relational database management system. This system is used to store data as well as retrieve it when necessary; these functions can be supported by individual users or by multiple users within a larger network. The Microsoft SQL Server has warehousing options, quality and integration services, management tools that are simple to implement, as well as robust tools for development.

Looking at the more technical end of things, Microsoft SQL Server uses query languages such as T-SQL and ANSI SQL. Disaster recovery is one of the product's most prominent features, in addition to in-memory performance, scalability, and corporate business intelligence capabilities.
