Pros: Microsoft SQL is a standard for applying the Structured Query Language to tabular databases, which makes life much easier when your database is massive. You can select the data that you want using clear syntax, and from there work more quickly.

Cons: I dislike that Microsoft SQL isn't as as streamlined as you might expect. For example, it takes many more keystrokes and clicks to import a table than it should, and table entries that are too large may not display properly.

Overall: SQL helped with data replication across database with ease. Picking all of those out one by one would have take a long time, but SQL made this processes fast.

Pros: MSSQL Server Express is free, but has all the features of the full MSSQL Server. SQL
query syntax is very similar to MySQL and other SQL databases. you can create your
reports with MS Reporting Services and your DWH/datamart structures with MSSQL
Integration Services. Fantastic product for your business, excellent the AlwaysOn
functionality and in-memory tables.

Cons: Too much slow with xml data type, It's also a little bit "huge" in installation, and
requires really a lot of hardware resources, and so the cost is high for the licenses.

Overall: We use it to manage part of our enterprise ETL process. Microsoft SQL Server is
being used extensively in my organization. It is the default database for SharePoint sites and
also the default choice for custom database applications. SQL Server Database is very
commonly used in the IT department since it is well suited with the Microsoft products.

Recommendations to other buyers: SQL Server is more technical user oriented, not really a user facing application, but IT user can easily work with it

Pros: These are a few in a long list of optimizations that result in a faster-running product. Under the theme of data protection, security capabilities are improved with the introduction of data masking on tables, new encryption capabilities and row level security SQL Server 2016 has been developed on the existing code base making it stable and compatible, and allowing customers to take advantage of new features easily.

Cons: Upgrading becomes more critical if you are on an old version such as SQL Server 2005, as you will no longer be able to obtain product fixes for the version.

Overall: Microsoft SQL Server has served me well, handling all kinds of tasks from Data warehousing, automated data pushes, reporting, notifications and ad-hoc analysis. Since we started using SQL Server several years ago, it has allowed us to better serve our customers with consistent data analysis and file pushes. The product is stable and mature, and the best is the "integration". Integration with Visual Studio, with Reporting Services, Analysis Services, Integration Services

I'm a part programmer, part administrator, and part user when it comes to SQL Server. I'm pleased with the tools available (SQL Server Management Studio). I would recommend this to any business!

Recommendations to other buyers: We have a dedicated DB Team and it is good to have trained professionals backing you up.

Pros: It supports database snapshot and content databases which are very useful way of managing multiple DB requirements. Client tool is one of best add-on, almost 99% of activities can be performed using intuitive GUI console, easy for newcomers and also provide advanced capabilities for advanced DBAs.

Cons: No portability for Unix system.

Overall: The performance is really good, complex queries with dozens of different joins execute quite fast. The SQL Management Studio is one of the best tools I've seen for running queries, it allows to concentrate on typing the query while auto-filling a lot of code for you. Executing the SQL query plan provides very good info that can be used to optimize one's queries. Built-in reports that provide a lot of metadata info for the DB.

Comments: I have used MSSQL Server for Data mining and generating Reports for Capital Market as well as Fraud Detection and Money Laundering detection for one of the biggest financial institute of UK. Our application was used by all executive for assessing the market risk associated with their investments.

Pros :
- GUI of MSSQL studio is very good, easy to grasp which in turns helps to do thing efficiently.
- Query plan execution helps to eliminate possible issue at very early stage of development.
- Query Profiler gives the insight of possible bottlenecks to fix Production and UAT issue.
- MSSQL Server has high availability features like Always ON, Replication, Database Mirroring

- MSSQL DB has very good integration with other Microsoft products which provides the edge for speedy development.
- Great community support for learning by forum, online video and expert blogs

Cons:
- Huge Licensing Cost of product
- Personally feels MSSQL server is too slow with 'XMLTYPE' Data
- Installing and maintaining MSSQL on Linux platform is the challenging task, which keeps O&M team on tow every day.

Comments: SQL Server is great for power users that rely on large databases. Excel is still my go-to software for smaller databases, but SQL Server is great if you know what you're doing. If you have Excel databases that take forever to open, my advice is to switch to SQL Server, watch a few how-to videos, and it should be pretty familiar when you learn some basic queries.

SQL Server is a great easy to use database.

Pros: You can do practically anything with this database because it, has complete solutions integrated into it like SSIS, SSRS, Monitoring, Task Schedule (SQL Agent), alerts, other database connectors, etc.
And currently Microsoft is working to finish his database 2016 version to running on Linux.

Cons: Perhaps the only (at the moment) problem, are the locks management in the database when the update/delete operations are very big. I miss the possibility to auto-partition (internal scripts) of these operations, managed by the database engine.

Overall: I have been working with MS SQL Server from the SQL 2000 version. Currently I work with SQL 2016 (and I am testing SQL 2016 in Linux). In all of these years, I have been using a different solution of the database (clustering, data mirroring, CDC, log shipping, AlwaysOn, etc..), always with a great satisfaction.
A great number of people think that MS SQL Server is a database for small data volumes but, these people are wrong. This database, can manage a big data volume and his management could be very easy if you follow the MS recommendations.
On the other hand, you have a great knowledge base in Microsoft and in a great number of tech portals and blogs. You can find in the Internet, (almost) any T-SQL code to implement with only search it.

Pros: Data accessing via Excel or Access is very easy.
Reporting services are a really good example to present and analyze the data to management.
We do have an analytics team which does a lot of data modeling and also uses lots of integration services.

Cons: Definitely room for improvement in SQL server reporting services.
Missing the functionality to purge/archive/delete the reports from the server. We have to do it one at a time.

Overall: I prefer SQL Server for SharePoint applications. There are SSIS data sources, destinations that can be used to sync data between SharePoint lists and SQL Server tables. SQL Server is a good choice if you are looking for a solution with quicker time to market. It is simple to use and administer. However, I would prefer something else (like Oracle) for enterprise solutions.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think for any application it really works well. It has lots of features which could help with business requirements. It can easily import the data from different data sources and also can export the data in the required format. It is really good in OLTP transactions too. We will have to use it well to make it more efficient. For ex: if you don't have proper indexing, it might take time to retrieve the data you wanted or you might run into time out situations.

Comments: At SpaceX, there are numerous amounts of data that need to be stored and to be used. SQL server has a huge capacity to store those data, and at the same time share data across the company. You don't need to send 10 different excel files, and SQL server allows all data to be accessed by everyone. I really like how SQL server has helped advanced my career.
