Quick Overview

Microsoft SQL Server


Workgroup Edition is the data management solution for small organizations that need a database with no limits on size or number of users. Workgroup Edition can serve as a front-end Web server or for departmental or branch office operations. It includes the core database features of the SQL Server product line and is easy to upgrade to Standard or Enterprise Edition.

Organizations today face numerous data challenges, such as the need to make faster and more data-driven decisions, the need to increase the productivity and flexibility of development staff, and pressure to reduce overall information technology (IT) budgets while also scaling the infrastructure to meet ever-increasing demands.

SQL Server 2005 is designed to help enterprises address these challenges. This next-generation data management and analysis solution delivers increased security, scalability, and availability to enterprise data and analytical applications, while making them easier to build, deploy, and manage.

Extending the strengths of SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005 provides an integrated data management and analysis solution that can help organizations of any size to do the following:

  • Build, deploy, and manage enterprise applications that are more secure, scalable, and reliable.
  • Maximize IT productivity by reducing the complexity of developing and supporting database applications.
  • Share data across multiple platforms, applications, and devices to make it easier to connect internal and external systems.
  • Control costs without sacrificing performance, availability, scalability, or security.

SQL Server 2005 advances your data infrastructure in three key areas: enterprise data management, developer productivity, and business intelligence (BI). It also breaks new ground in affordable pricing and licensing, upgrade paths to SQL Server 2005, and the Microsoft Windows Server System.
