Big data is an important part of today’s technology world, and it’s helping businesses around the globe better process and target their respective audiences. With Microsoft’s SQL Server, you gain a comprehensive solution designed to improve the way your applications perform in the work environment, while simultaneously allowing for quick and easy data analysis.
DCS can equip your business with Microsoft SQL Server to enhance your everyday operations. Some of the benefits of SQL Server include:
Your business relies on applications to remain effective, and without them, it would be impossible to keep up with day-to-day operations. You want to make sure they are always healthy and operating at maximum security and efficiency, and SQL Server gives you the tools to do just that. Thanks to SQL Server, your applications will run at optimal speed, allowing your business to run at a faster pace.
View data trends in accessible and familiar applications. Some big data platforms are difficult to operate and inaccessible via mobile devices, but SQL Server is different. By taking advantage of cloud connectivity, your team can gain access to insights and trends in the market via a mobile device through applications they are familiar with, like the Microsoft Office suite. Whether it’s internal or external data, you’ll be able to access and analyse the data to make informed decisions.
SQL Server is designed to meet the specific demands of your business. With scalable solutions crafted to help your business stay as efficient as possible while storing as much data as you need, SQL Server is a valuable investment for any business looking to take advantage of next-generation big data capabilities. SQL Server is also designed to work for both on-premises, hybrid, or cloud-based infrastructures, which gives it impressive versatility.
Microsoft Exchange enables your organization to configure and host email and collaboration services and is the “standard” that most businesses use today. Employees today are distributed and mobile, working from different geographic locations. To stay productive, employees need complete access to their email as business communication can take place anytime and anywhere.

Virtualization is an important part of doing business with modern technology. Using virtual machines that have been abstracted from their physical counterparts can provide benefits such as decreased capital and operational costs, with improved workplace efficiency. By effectively leveraging virtualization technologies to your advantage, your organization can ensure greater uptime at reduced costs. Microsoft’s virtualization software, Hyper-V, is a hypervisor that allows your organization to create and host virtual machines, like desktops and servers, on x86-64 systems. These systems can then be exposed to your computing infrastructure through your network, effectively allowing your team to access mission-critical information, cloud-based applications, and even a full virtual desktop infrastructure, without running the information locally on their own workstations or thin clients.
When you virtualize your servers and workstations using Hyper-V, you are essentially abstracting the software from the physical component, allowing you to store the software and deploy it through a virtual environment. This means that you no longer rely on multiple servers to host all your data and applications. This naturally leads to a decrease in operational costs, like electricity and air conditioning, that might be required to optimize the functionality of your hardware
Virtualizing your business’s hardware solutions is only as valuable as how you manage your network’s resources. Hyper-V allows for control over your virtual resources, so you can know with certainty that your resources are being deployed in the most efficient manner possible. Furthermore, if your organization uses legacy applications, you can easily run them on virtual servers, which makes upgrading your technology easier than ever.
