What is SQL Server?

I’ve been playing around with YouTube, making some tutorial videos on SQL Server and it’s been a fun process so far. For my first video I decided to start at the beginning – This video looks at what SQL Server is? Basically what comes under the SQL Server umbrella? What comprises the SQL Server Product

Whilst that sounds like a straight forward tasks, I have found this video  quite hard to write and put together and it took at least 5 takes to record the 8 minutes.

What is SQL Server?

  • It’s the database engine
  • It Integration Services
  • Reporting Services
  • Analysis
  • All the R integration

There is a lot to SQL Sever and it very difficult to summarize into a YouTube video, which I’m told for optimal views should be 7 minutes or less.

This is 8 minutes long. Try as I might I couldn’t squeeze it into 7 minutes. This is my second video as I do more of these and get better at it I might revisit this topic again to try and hit the 7 minute mark but I’m happy with this for now.

The video is loosely based on this blog post from February 2016 Introduction to SQL Server: The Main Components
