What Is An SQL Server?
SQL, short for Structured Query Language, is a standard language for data storage, manipulation or even retrieval in databases. So, if you want your web site to be able to store and retrieve data from a database, your web server should have access to a database-system that uses the SQL language, it is what we called an SQL Server.
Currently, Host4ASP.NET offers three types of SQL Server, including MS SQL Server, MySQL, and MS Access.
What Is the Difference Between MS SQL and MySQL database systems?
MS SQL and MySQL are two most widely-used database systems. MS SQL is a Microsoft product, whereas MySQL is an open source RDBMS developed by Oracle. They each come with different benefits in helping users create, read, update and delete back-end data.
Supported Platforms—MS SQL used to be compatible with Windows operating systems only. But Microsoft recently has announced the support for both Linux and Mac OS X. Therefore, MS SQL now can run on three distinct platforms, which, on the other side, have been fully supported by MySQL all the time.
Programming Languages—Both MS SQL and MySQL support multiple programming languages, like Java, C++, PHP, Ruby, Python, Delphi, and Visual Basic. Besides these, MySQL also supports Perl, Tcl, Eiffel, Haskel, and Scheme.
Filtering—MS SQL users can benefit from the row-based filtering feature to filter data on a database by database way and store the filtered data in a separate distribution database. Differently, MySQL users have to filter out the tables, rows and users using individual databases and running multiple queries.
Backup—While using MS SQL, users can backup and restore huge amount of data quickly and easily. But MySQL requires users to extract all data as SQL statements when backing up data. The data restoration process of MySQL seems more time-consuming while reducing chances of data corruption.
