Top Customer Reviews
As a database technology, SQL Server 2008 has come into its own, finally being feature-rich enough and capable enough to be compared to Enterprise big-guns like Oracle. Microsoft are also nudging their way into SAP/Business Objects territory, making ancillary activities like Reporting and Transformations much easier to perform. The SQL Server 2008 interface is powerful, it is surprisingly easy to use, and installation and maintenance really do seem to be a breeze. You also get useful features like the SQL Server Books Online to help you learn, integration with Visual Studio to speed up your development time, and some surprisingly simple interfaces for doing powerful transforms/ETL like the Business Intelligence Development Studio.
If you're a developer, and you found downloading and installing the free version(s) of SQL Server 2008 to not meet your needs (or in my case, be fraught with problems), you can't argue with the price. This product works well to get you fairly far towards "guru", and can help teach old Database Dogs new tricks. :) You should be advised that this product is only intended for learning and working in a development environment and should NOT be used to deploy and/or support Production data or applications.
Keep in mind Oracle dev is free but it won't get you up and running as fast. Also note there is SQL 2008 R2 is out.
Please note that you can not use this edition of SQL Server for a production database. It's intended use is only for development and testing purposes. I'm using the software to study for the a SQL Server certification exam.
