Microsoft SQL Server has become one of the most utilized relational database products on the market with more than 80% of businesses using it. SQL Server’s primary function is to provide the backend data storage for applications that we use everyday, such as CRM or ERP systems. As a result, the majority of an organization’s corporate data is stored on SQL Server, and it is critical that all authorized users are able to access that information as quickly as possible.
Optimizing your SQL Server requires deep technical expertise across many aspects of your infrastructure. ITRegulators has that depth of expertise, and can assess and optimize your existing SQL Server configuration, or assist in the proper planning and sizing of your new SQL Server installation.
Reading and writing your business-critical data
Some applications, such as those used in a call center, require the database to be “read” thousands of times per second. Others, an ERP application for example, constantly “write” new data to the database. The difference comes down to the hardware you’ll use for your SQL Server. The ITRegulators IT professionals will assist you in determining:
- The type of application you will be using
- What type of hardware you’ll need, and
- How that hardware needs to be configured
Once the correct hardware is in place, SQL Server still needs to be installed and configured properly in order to run optimally. Setting up the proper best practice SQL Server maintenance plans is integral to ensuring that your SQL Server performs as well on day one as it does on day 100. Using Microsoft best practices ITRegulators professionals install, configure, and setup ongoing tasks to ensure best performance.
