SQL Server is Microsoft’s proprietary RDBMS (Relational Database Management System). It comes in several versions that are targeted toward data centers (SQL Datacenter), cluster deployments (SQL Enterprise), and cloud-based frameworks and services (SQL Azure). It offers a mature feature set that includes such attributes as buffer management; pessimistic and optimistic concurrency control; an ETL (Extract-Transfer-Load) tool, OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) capabilities; messaging and alert technologies; Database Mirroring using Windows Clustering for High Availability; Remote Replication using AlwaysOn for disaster recovery; and in-memory column-store. SQL Server 2014 will include in-memory transaction processing technology, in addition to other new features.
