We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Maintaining databases is a valuable feature for us.The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable featureThe most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.

The most valuable feature is replication because we had several replicas of the SQL Server database in different geographical locations.It is one of the most stable relational databases out there.I have experience with this product for many years. I never have problems with it. It can handle a PC, and it can also handle huge data. It is fast and efficient.This solution has proven stability and operational power.Tuning Advisor suggests where to add indexes and from where to remove them. It works like an adviser.SQL Server Profiler makes finding and debugging easy.I use it to fine tune my procedures and functions.Enables us to convert to bigger DBs and more easily move or upgrade between branches.

Cons
It would be beneficial to include this solution with Oracle Enterprise, but Oracle charges additional fees for it.That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.The user interface for this solution can be made better.

I would like to have more replication scenarios.I would like to see native plugins built for other platforms versus having to buy third-party plugins to tap into S3 buckets and AWS Cloud. Right now, it does not have those built-in plugins.It would be nice if there was a feature to search for a specific value across multiple tables. This would save a lot of time for its users.Improvements to the indexing, columnstore indexing, and high availability groups are good improvements for future versions.Third-party services from Redgate should be built-in to it, like SQL Search.Debugging from the debugger tool functionality should be enhanced.From a DB administrator perspective, I would like to see more space requirements and space capacity history, so that we are able to see which DBs are growing, and by how much per day or week.An area for improvement would be the SQL Server process monitoring, which is quite basic and could sustain more information.

Pricing and Cost Advice
For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.This solution is a little bit pricey.

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.The setup cost is high, but it will return every penny.My advice is quite straightforward. If you know the number of users who really and truly need access to the Server then it is a no-brainer. If you do not know, then get the basic package and minimum licenses and start from there. Needless to say, users can develop/use data structures outside and then deploy onto the Server.The price has been going higher and higher. The market is quite price sensitive.

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.
