"The auto-backup replication is a perfect feature. That is the feature I liked the most."
"It is easy to use and easy to perform a backup."
"We've found it to basically be pretty problem-free."
"I have found SQL Server easy to use."
"The interface is user friendly."
"The latest version supports for big data analytics. SQL Server's vector processing-based batch execution mode is now available to the entire execution of R or Python code. Since much of the work that tends to be done in R and Python involves aggregation, batch mode - which processes rows of data several at a time, can be very helpful."
"Microsoft SQL Server is one of the better database administration software packages out there. It runs primarily on Windows Server platforms, but it can also run on Linux platforms."
"SQL Server scales well."
"From a security perspective, we have no complaints."
"A problem we are experiencing now is when doing a backup in SQL 2012 and 14."
"Its security can be improved. When you look at the Windows environment, it isn't the most secure environment. It is exposed to so many attacks. They continuously need to improve the security of the platform on which it sits."
"The solution could improve by having more integration with other operating systems and other platforms."
"I would like to see improvements made to the stability of SQL Server, as well as more analytics requirements."
"Scalability of the database could be improved if it could handle increased volumes of data."
"SQL Server could be improved with cheaper licensing because it's very expensive."
"CAL licenses should cost less. Microsoft usually prices high for client access licenses. Server plus user client access license (CAL) licensing requires a separate Server license for each server on which the software is installed, plus a user CAL for each user accessing the server."
"Additional interfaces would be an improvement."
"The pricing of the product could be better."
