SQL Server can excel with cloud storage

Gartner reports nearly 75% of all databases need cloud-based storage by 2022. As a leading relational database management system (RDBMS), Microsoft SQL Server (MS SQL) is the go to choice for Windows-platform designed applications. SQL Server has helped to revolutionize the way enterprises manage massive data sets.

Solving modern data challenges requires enterprise-grade feature sets. Do you have the right cloud storage features to improve your cloud SQL data management and analytics?



Databases benefit from low latency, high IOPs, and high throughput storage to deliver the right application performance.



Redundancy and high availability configurations protect against device failures to help keep your applications online.



Data corruption, external threats, or accidental data loss are all reasons why the right protection is needed for your data.



Application development workflows benefit from rapid iteration and parallel testing to innovate and reduce costs.



Service failure shouldn’t result in data loss, even in the cloud. You need storage that protects against data loss due to unplanned service outages.



Increase database efficiency and automate common tasks to reduce risk caused by human error and to improve operational productivity.
