MS SQL Server vs My SQL...Best options for what I need?
Posted on 2010-08-19
I am currently looking to find hosting for a website that will have a DB backend. The company owner wanted to go with MS SQL, which was fine with me since I have more experience with it, but it seems for what I need I would have to get a dedicated setup. I am not experienced enough to manage a web server since that really isn't what I do.
I am curious if My SQL would work okay for what I need? Think insurance company with online claims and such...I will have to check with the owner to see how many claims and contacts they have in a month, but it appears that right now they are storing about 300-400 MB of data with a CRM company. They are looking to move everything and control it themselves...
