Microsoft began developing relational database management systems known as SQL servers over 20 years ago. From a database standpoint, this software product has the primary function of retrieving and storing data when other software applications request it. Furthermore, the requests from software applications can come from other computers within a network (e.g. the internet) or from the same computer. Microsoft has made at least a dozen different editions of SQL servers, so selecting the right software application can be a bit challenging at times.
