Microsoft SQL server is a database software program that supports the Structured Query Language (SQL) , but adds its own unique extensions to create a unique SQL server language. Microsoft SQL server is used with the Windows operating system.

Microsoft SQL Server Support

The Internet has substantially increased the demand for Microsoft SQL server as more companies look to make their databases available to customers, vendors and employees. This also requires that the Microsoft SQL server be available 24/7 so the choice of Microsoft SQL server hosting or remote management provider is critical as well. Unfortunately trying to find a Microsoft SQL server provider that is qualified is difficult.

Microsoft SQL Server Issues

It is very important you get the database server configured correctly the first time. This configuration will determine how well the database performs, how easy it will be to increase the throughput, and how easy it will be to back-up. To achieve this your Microsoft SQL server provider must be familiar with the requirements of Microsoft SQL server. Many hosting providers are familiar with web hosting, but have little experience with Microsoft SQL server, particularly in complex clusters. A database is much more dynamic than a web site, so your Microsoft SQL server provider must be technically skilled.

There can be great value to having a database available on the Internet, but only if your Microsoft SQL server provider can properly configure and maintain it.
