Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that supports a wide variety of transaction processing, business intelligence, and analytics applications in corporate IT environments. Microsoft SQL Server is one of the three market-leading database technologies, along with Oracle Database and IBM's DB2.

Like other RDBMS software, Microsoft SQL Server is built on top of SQL, a standardized programming language that database administrators (DBAs) and other IT professionals use to manage databases and query the data they contain. SQL Server is tied to Transact-SQL (T-SQL), an implementation of SQL from Microsoft that adds a set of proprietary programming extensions to the standard language.

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills to maintain a Microsoft SQL Server 2019 database. The training focuses on teaching individuals how to use SQL Server 2019 product features and tools related to maintaining the server environment and the databases it contains and is designed for customers who are interested in learning SQL Server 2016, SQL 2017, or SQL Server 2019. It covers the new features in SQL Server 2019, but also the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform.

Topics include Installation, Data Storage, Data Maintenance and Recovery, Monitoring, Security, and Server Maintenance. This course requires that you meet the following prerequisites: Basic knowledge of the Microsoft Windows operating system and its core functionality. Working knowledge of Transact-SQL.
