  • I can speak for MS SQL Server as being capable of handling huge data. Oracle is another. Of course, you have to know what you are doing. If you do something stupid, then expect lack luster capability

  • Hi pranaliNG,

    This is a community forum for SQL Server technical questions & issues.

    SQL Server 2019 is the latest version of the versatile and venerable SQL Server. This latest version continues to redefine SQL Server from a traditional relational database system to a data platform for every data scenario from OLTP to DW to now big data and analytics.

  • For PHP the usual combination is MySQL (although not necessary).

    One of my colleagues told me that MySQL is much faster than MS SQL (she told from her personal experience). I don't know if that's true or not, I only have very limited experience with MySQL and working with latest Workbench I found a couple of bugs while trying to import data.

  • There is no way to answer your question.  There are many database engines which do different things well.  Without knowing specifics about your actual data needs, it is impossible to give a recommendation.

    You just walked into a home improvement store and said "I need a saw".  There are hundreds of different kinds of saws used for specific purposes.  You don't use a table saw to cut down trees.  You don't use a chain saw to cut trim in your house.
