Why should I care about SQL Server?

Published on June 16, 2010 at 12:16 pm by iWeb Technologies in: Web Development Articles, iWeb Articles

If you are a user of our Windows Server dedicated hosting services you might be interested in knowing more about Microsoft SQL Server.

When making database management system decisions many companies focus on initial benefits but fail to pay attention to longer term advantages. The ability to scale, redundancy, reporting and synchronization are features that you can take advantage of out-of-the-box with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2.

Next week, Microsoft is going to host a webcast whose purpose is to highlight the benefits of Microsoft SQL Server Express and Windows Server dedicated hosting.

This webcast will focus on tools and procedures for getting you up and running with SQL Server quickly, how SQL Server compares to MySQL and how to get a fully functional copy of SQL Server for free.

You can join the live webcast on June 23rd from 1-2pm EST. Access to the Webcast is free but you must register here: https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032453541&Culture=en-CA

The webcast is opened to anyone but will be held in English only.
