A database is an integrated collection of logically-related records or files consolidated into a common pool that provides data for one or more multiple uses. One way of classifying databases involves the type of content, for example: bibliographic, full-text, numeric, image. Other classification methods start from examining database models or database architectures: see below. Software organizes the data in a database according to a database model. As of 2010 the relational model occurs most commonly. Other models such as the hierarchical model and the network model use a more explicit representation of relationships.
One of the best database type is SQL Server from Microsoft. All Windows hosting company should support SQL Server. SQL Server enables you to store data from structured, semi-structured and unstructured documents, such as images and music, directly within the database. And it includes integrated services that enable you to query, search, synchronize, report and analyse your data.
The current version of SQL Server, SQL Server 2008, (code-named “Katmai”) was released (RTM) on August 6, 2008 and aims to make data management self-tuning, self organizing, and self maintaining with the development of SQL Server Always On technologies, to provide near-zero downtime. SQL Server 2008 also includes support for structured and semi-structured data, including digital media formats for pictures, audio, video and other multimedia data. In current versions, such multimedia data can be stored as BLOBs (binary large objects), but they are generic bitstreams. Intrinsic awareness of multimedia data will allow specialized functions to be performed on them. According to Paul Flessner, senior Vice President, Server Applications, Microsoft Corp., SQL Server 2008 can be a data storage backend for different varieties of data: XML, email, time/calendar, file, document, spatial, etc as well as perform search, query, analysis, sharing, and synchronization across all data types.
