Microsoft SQL Server 2000/2005/2008/2012/2014

MS SQL Server is the best SQL

It was a smooth implementation.

Easy implementation great features

We started with SQL 2008 for this application and upgraded to 2014 without any issues. We are now looking to upgrade to SQL Azure, so we can reduce our managment overhead even further.

Microsoft Azure DocumentDB

DocumentDB easy to install but costly

The implementation was fairly simple; however, the cost for document DB is hard to justify. We needed three collections to handle our load which means 6 collections to handle staging and production.

Another successful SQL Server implementation

Microsoft has done a great job making SQL Server performant and easy to program.

MSSQL 2014 Updgrade

Performance and functionality has improved. We are experiencing compatibility issues with code that was written for SQL 2008 R2. This is due to differnet execution plans the 2014 chooses compare to 2008 R2

Hard to plan costs, Live support is lacking, but solid product

Difficult to find live people for context and implementation questions, but online support was very responive.

Modern database with very good performance and backup features

It has been good experience. Its a cost effective solution for databases. Internal applications can be easily written using databases in sql server.

Database Management using PaaS platforms is the right choice.

While the technical limitations of the solution have sometimes caused problems, development by the Vendor has kept pace with expectations and support has been good. Adopting PaaS platforms for database management provides an overall better experience. We have had good support on both the technical and product side, and technical progress of the product is clearly visible over time. Performance and reliability has also improved over time. The pricing of the products is separated by Tier but it is very difficult to reduce that back to a real-world, application specific TCO. The pricing makes sense from the vendors point of view, but the difficulty in sponsoring adoption is being able to effectively communicate what price/application transaction unit can be projected. This makes it difficult to estimate ongoing cost of providing a service over a growing usage base. For example, if you need to know what the price per user for a service you are building is going to be, it becomes difficult to produce a number against the database management pricing.

SQL 2014 migration was quicker that any other migration to previous versions.

Fast and feature rich, though expensive DBMS

Deployment is simple, even for complicated setups including active clusters, mirroring, etc.
