Business-critical applications depend upon Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) to store and manage data for processing and reporting. Since RDMBS must maintain data integrity and ensure availability and performance, the ability for an enterprise to protect and store data on high-performance, highly available storage resources is critical. Microsoft® SQL Server® supports a vast range of business-critical applications, and thus has seen rapid uptake among enterprises that rely upon RDBMS solutions.
