We are using SQL Server database management system everyday as an administrator, SQL developer, Business intelligence developer and etc. Everyone is using different  services available in SQL Server as per their business need. But, how many of us know what does SQL Server offers and what are the features that contains in it and that is not available in other products. We may ask, why should I learn about all these information. The answer is very simple, it will make you proud of using SQL Server. In every new version of SQL Server, Microsoft is introducing some new features that are very useful for business and gives opportunity to work with new technology for the current generation. For instance, in SQL Server 2012 we have always-on as high availability solution, column stored index, DQS, MDS and etc. The special feature is that everything is in a single SQL Server bundle. But, other products may have difficult product hierarchy for each features and it will be more painful to manage.

When I first started using SQL Server there were other product in the market offers the same feature as Microsoft. But, I was having confident that Microsoft will improve their product rapidly. As a result, SQL Server 2005 was released with Business Intelligence services SSIS, SSAS and SSRS. Now, In SQL Server 2012 we have got lots of features with most latest technology that are mandatory for the every business.

Of-course, other products such as Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL has latest features. But, there are some differences between SQL Server 2012 and other products. So, Microsoft put lots of effort in creating white papers to discuss about how SQL Server is most efficient product among others.
