Rapidly growing data requires large databases that scale well and support a large number of concurrent users.
Access databases were a popular tool to build desktop-based applications with less than 2GB data. If your business-critical application is still running on Access database, you probably realize that it is pushing its limits and not meeting your business needs. Migration is necessary and critical to keep your business rolling.

This fits your expanding data stores to explore the possibilities of business analytics. SQL Server efficiently handles various queries in parallel by using multi-threading within a single process. Moreover, SQL provides role-based security integrated with the Windows operating system. SQL Server handles transactions with a two-phase commit. Furthermore, it engages several replication models. SQL Server supports round the clock availability and back up of your databases while they are running. SQL Server database can be brought back online quickly during system crashes or power outage without data loss.
