Microsoft SQL Server
SQL Server is Microsoft’s database server. It is, in effect, a competitor to Oracle.
Some of the advantages of SQL Server include:
- Administration: SQL Server has some useful visual administrative features.
- Triggers: SQL Server supports a wide range of “triggers,” pieces of code in the database that automatically execute under certain conditions. Triggers can help ensure the safety and correctness of your data, but can also be limiting. MySQL also supports triggers, but to a somewhat lesser extent.
Microsoft SQL Server can be a good choice for creating a database in a Windows environment.
