SQL Server on Oracle Cloud

1-click Oracle Deployment


Sql Server is a boundless tool for data analysis, specifically when talking about large amounts of data. There are many versions of Sql Server.SQL Server has come up with more new features that offer faster processing, more flexibility of use, and greater cost savings as a result. 

Cognosys Provides Hardened images of SQL Server  on the cloud with multiple utilities to help in easy deployment. Click on the respective cloud provider tab for technical information.

Get support for small data marts to large enterprise data warehouses while reducing storage needs with enhanced data compression. Scale to petabytes of data for enterprise-grade relational data warehousing—and integrate with non-relational sources like Hadoop.

Break down data silos

Gain insights from all your data by querying across your entire data estate—SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Cosmos DB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Oracle, Teradata, HDFS, and others—without moving or replicating the data.

Manage both structured and unstructured data

Build a shared data lake by combining both structured and unstructured data in SQL Server and accessing the data using either T-SQL or Spark.

AI across all your data

Big Data Clusters provide all the tools and systems to ingest, store, and prepare data for analysis, as well as to train, store, and operationalize machine learning models.

#1 in performance

Get record-breaking performance on Windows and Linux. SQL Server consistently leads across the TPC-E OLTP workload, TPC-H data warehousing workload, and real-world application performance benchmarks.

Fewest vulnerabilities for nine years

Protect data at rest and in motion with a database that has the fewest vulnerabilities of any major platform for nine years running in the National Institute of Standards and Technologies National Vulnerabilities Database.

Built-in security and compliance

Use built-in features for data classification, data protection, and monitoring and alerts. SQL Server 2019 monitors, identifies, and provides alerts on suspicious activity—even identifying and remediating security gaps and misconfigurations.

Always encrypted data enclaves

Encrypt sensitive data and execute rich computations on encrypted data, plus enable customized data access based on role with complex row filtering.

Intelligent database capabilities

Upgrade and modernize your SQL Server database on-premises, in the cloud, and at the edge. Database compatibility certification eliminates the risk of application incompatibility. Use in-memory database capabilities such as persistent memory support and memory-optimized tempdb to improve performance for your mission critical workloads.

Maximum availability

Gain mission-critical uptime, fast failover, and improved TCO using cloud disaster recovery replicas and always on availability groups.

Accelerated database recovery

Greatly improves database availability by enabling fast and consistent database recovery regardless of the number or size of active transactions.

Connect all your data

Combine data from almost any source using the extensive connector library and new transformations in SSAS tabular models.

Visual data exploration

Find the answers behind the data with visual data exploration and interactive analysis of data lakes data using SQL Server BI tools.
