A Short Background
SQL Server is one of the many types of RDBMS or relational database management systems that is widely used in many business IT environments nowadays. It was adopted by Microsoft and is now developed to support a huge array of business intelligence, analytics applications, and transaction processing.
It sits right next to the DB2 of IBM and the Oracle Database as the top three popular and most-trusted database technologies as of today.
Microsoft SQL Server is just like most RDBMS systems out there. It is built over SQL, the widely used programming language that DBAs and IT professionals use to deal with databases and data queries.
SQL Server was not originally made by Microsoft. It was SAP, formerly known as Sybase Inc., that developed it first during the 1980s. It was only until a few years after that Microsoft teamed up with the creator to make the very first commercially available SQL Server in 1989.
In 1994, Microsoft gained full control of the marketing and development of the SQL Server. Subsequently, it created a version that is fully integrated into its operating systems.
