SQL Server is an industry standard enterprise database system. When the quantity of data exceeds Access’ limit of 2Gb, or when the complexitity of data processing produces performance issues or when the number of concurrent users exceeds 15, SQL is the logical and increasingly cost-effective choice.
Unlike Access, SQL Server doesn’t provide an application designer. It’s optimised for data processing but the client must access the data from a separate application.
PowerDev’s developers are highly experienced in designing and building powerful databases in SQL Server and using Access or .NET to provide a desktop, internet or intranet interface to your data. We can also build applications that leverage the free ‘Express’ versions of SQL.
