Educational and Computer Services has been deploying Data Platform solutions for more than two decades. We have in-house competencies on both Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server RDBMS. Below are the Database Management Systems we often deploy.
Oracle Database has been the cornerstone of data management for the last 40 years. Enterprises around the world have relied on it for decades for their mission critical businesses.
Oracle Database 19c builds upon and extends the innovations of previous releases, including Multitenant, In-Memory, JSON support, and many other features that enable Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud Services. Oracle Database 19c is the long-term support release of the Oracle Database 12c and 18c family of products, offering customers Premier and Extended Support through to March 2023 and March 2026 respectively. It is available on Linux, Windows, Solaris, HP/UX and AIX platforms as well as the Oracle Cloud. Oracle Database 19c offers customers the best performance, scalability, reliability and security for all their operational and analytical workloads.
Some of the Oracle Database features and functions we are excited about here at Educational and Computer Services (ECS Consult) include:
We have been implementing Oracle as a backend for Financial Services Systems since 2012.Our footprint in deploying Oracle solutions has significantly grown in Africa
From its humble beginnings in OS/2 with version 1.1, SQL Server has proved repeatedly that it is a database that data professionals love to use. The engine is reliable, and the T-SQL dialect has everything the developer needs to quickly write resilient, high performing applications. With every release, SQL Server has improved on performance, functions, reliability, and security. As the releases progressed, more features were added, and then entirely new capabilities—a job engine, a reporting server, business intelligence, and data mining systems. .
Groundbreaking technologies, such as in-memory databases and column store indexes, made SQL Server one of the most installed Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSes) in the world.In Spring of 2016, Microsoft announced that SQL Server would be made available on the Linux operating system—something unbelievable to many technical professionals. Addition of Platform Abstraction Layer (PAL) in SQL Server allowed it to run on Linux operating systems such as Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and SUSE. It also added support for Linux containers, opening up amazing new possibilities for deployment and operation.
SQL Server 2019 represents not only an evolutionary release, but a revolutionary release. The promise of containers is completely realized with support for Kubernetes.The new SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters leverages Kubernetes as the deployment platform and adds the power of Spark and Apache Hadoop File System (HDFS)
Additionally, SQL Server 2019 supports Data Virtualization and workloads with deployable applications running on-premises, in the cloud, and even in hybrid configurations. This allows SQL Server 2019 to modernize your data estate and applications with intelligence over any data—structured and unstructured.
At Educational and Computer Services (ECS Consult), we have been working with SQL Server for over two decades. We have enjoyed and experienced the maturity of this product. We have in house skills to assist our with their journey in transformation to the Microsoft data platform
