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.

What is SQL Reporting Services?

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a server-based report generation software system from Microsoft. It can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports. It is administered via a web interface. Reporting services features a web services interface to support the development of custom reporting applications.

SSRS competes with Crystal Reports and other business intelligence tools, and is included in Express, Workgroup, Standard, and Enterprise editions of Microsoft SQL Server as an install option. Reporting Services was first released in 2004 as an add-on to SQL Server 2000. The second version was released as a part of SQL Server 2005 in November 2005. The latest version was released as part of SQL Server 2008 in August 2008.

In SSRS, reports are defined in Report Definition Language (RDL), an XML markup language. Reports can be designed using recent versions of Microsoft Visual Studio with the included Business Intelligence Projects plug-in installed or with the included Report Builder, a simplified tool that does not offer all the functionality of Visual Studio. Reports defined by RDL can be generated in a variety of formats including Excel, PDF, CSV, XML, TIFF (and other image formats), and HTML Web Archive. SQL Server 2008 SSRS can also prepare reports in Microsoft Word (DOC) format.
