SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) developed by Microsoft.

SQL Server is used most in the small to medium sized business environments, but is slowly being integraded in to larger scale businesses.


Introduced by the Oracle Corporation in the late 1970s, Oracle was the first database capable of running a range of platforms from micro to mainframe. Oracle is used extensively on many popular computing platforms. By the year 1999 Internet enhancements were added including support for Java, XML and a JVM (Java interpreter) built into the DBMS. Also the JVM can execute Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), turning the DBMS into an application server.


From Microsoft and packaged with Microsoft Office Professional, Microsoft Access is a relational database management system. Using data stored in Access/Jet, SQL Server, Oracle, or any ODBC-compliant data container, developers can produce robust application software.


With an estimated six million installations, MySQL is popular for web applications. The ability to work on a multitude of platforms (GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP to name a few.) and it’s ability to work seamlessly with the programming language PHP make it a sought after database among today’s business environments.
