MS SQL Server 2008 Express Hosting Services

Posted on: July 1, 2009


Have you upgrades your applications database to SQL Server 2008?

Here are some benefits of SQL Server Express 2008 over the previous version of SQL Server 2005
1 – SQL Server 2008 can be a data storage backend for different varieties of data: XML, email, time/calendar, file, document, spatial, etc as well as perform search, query, analysis, sharing, and synchronization across all data types.

2 – SQL Server 2008 includes support for structured and semi-structured data, including digital media formats for pictures, audio, video and other multimedia data.

3 – Backing up and restoring the database backs up or restores the referenced files as well. SQL Server 2008 also natively supports hierarchical data, and includes T-SQL constructs to directly deal with them, without using recursive queries.

4 – Better support for unstructured and semi-structured data is provided using the new FILESTREAM data type, which can be used to reference any file stored on the file system.

5 – SQL Server Reporting Services will gain charting capabilities from the integration of the data visualization.

6 – SQL Server includes better compression features, which also helps in improving scalability.

It is recommended to upgrade to MS SQL Server 2008 to obtain the latest and upgraded features of the database structure for easier management and security for your application. You may always consult your hosting provider regarding this matter.
