SQL server is a software to maintain a relational database system developed by Microsoft. This main function of SQL server is storing and retrieving data from any software or application.
 
Before, Microsoft provided SQL Server as the software to be installed and used in its own computers. But nowadays, Azure provides the SQL server as one of the services in our cloud.
