Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "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."
  • "Cost is a major derivative for any organization. It has a reasonable cost value, and its cloud support is also better than others. Comparatively, Oracle can do the same things or is even better in certain areas, but it is expensive. The cost along with the support are the plus factors for SQL Server."
  • "We have had to purchase the Enterprise version to the tune of a few hundred thousand dollars, which is just ridiculous."
  • "With recent releases, the Standard Edition (cheaper) SKU has some of the earlier version Enterprise features. SQL Express has some limitations."

    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.
