Frequently asked questions
SQL Server is a relational database management system or RDBMS created and developed by Microsoft. Designed to store and retrieve data for other software applications using the client-server model– these applications connect to SQL Server through a network or the Internet with multiple applications using the same data. One SQL Server instance can also manage one or more relational databases. Relational databases store data in tables that can relate to each other. For example, data for business customers get stored in one table relating to another table that stores orders. Applications that connect to Microsoft SQL Server retrieve, store, and delete data using Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL Server is available for Windows and Linux.
