Microsoft SQL Server 2005

What is Microsoft SQL Server 2005?

SQL Server 2005 included native support for managing XML data, in addition to relational data. In addition, it also defines a new extension to XQuery, called XML DML, that allows query-based modifications to XML data. SQL Server 2005 also allows a database server to be exposed over web services using Tabular Data Stream (TDS) packets encapsulated within SOAP (protocol) requests. SQL Server 2005 introduced DMVs (Dynamic Management Views), which are specialized views and functions that return server state information that can be used to monitor the health of a server instance, diagnose problems, and tune performance.


Microsoft SQL Server 2005 is a software program developed by Microsoft. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 46% of users of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Australia.
