Microsoft SQL Server software started with Sybase SQL Server and is considered to be the first entry to the enterprise-level database market. It competed against Oracle, IBM and Sybase itself at a later stage.

In 1989, Microsoft teamed up with Sybase and Ashton-Tate to market the first software version called SQL Server 1.0. In 1992, SQL Server 4.2 was created and marketed. Later, SQL Server 4.21 for Windows NT was released. This is also the time when Windows NT 3.1 came out.

About the time Windows NT came out, Microsoft separated from Sybase and made his own design and marketing strategies. It asked for exclusive rights to all versions of SQL Server made for Microsoft operating systems. Since Microsoft’s separation from Sybase, it made several changes independently.

The software SQL Server 7.0 was released. This is considered to be the first GUI-based database server.  This means that a user can interact with electronic devices and it offers graphical icons and visual indicators. This software version was later succeeded by SQL Server 2000.This SQL Server software is considered to be a variant for the IA-64 architecture.

Other advancements in SQL Server software

There are several more versions that were created and released after SQL Server 2000 such as the following:
SQL Server 2005 was released in 2006. Its features included native support for XML data and relational data. Through this software, features such as error handling and support for recursive queries were added specifically for relational data. It has also enhanced indexing algorithms and better error recovery systems.

Later, SQL Server 2008 was released in 2008. This is focused on making data management self-maintaining and self-organizing.
SQL Server software is getting better through the years. Users can look forward to more innovations in SQL Server.
