SQL Server (Microsoft)

General Information

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) produced by Microsoft. Its primary query language is T-SQL.

Your database can be hosted centrally on Univeristy supported servers.  To learn more about this service visit MSSQL Database Hosting.

The Univerity has purchased SQL Server Device Client Access Licenses (CALs) which cover all current staff, faculty and students that access databases running SQL Server on Univeristy owned computers.  

If you do not utilize Database Hosting Services, SQL server licenses need to be purchased through our Microsoft Select Plus vendor CDW-G through UMarket.
