Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Benefits of a SQL Server back end, part of Migrating Access Databases to SQL Server.
- There are many benefits of using SQL Server…as your data source over a split access database file.…They can typically be broken down…into the topics of security, reliability, and scalability.…Let's take a look at each one…and the benefits that they bring when storing your data.…First, SQL Server helps maintain a secure environment…in several ways.…SQL Server requires people to login to the server…before they're give access to any of the databases…or data within.…There are robust controls on user accounts and permissions…built into the system either through…the Windows authentication process…that identifies users through their standard machine logins,…or via specific user accounts that are stored…right in the server in something…called mixed mode authentication.…
Both of these security protocols keep people out of areas…that they shouldn't be in,…or grants permissions to some areas, but not others.…In contrast, Access databases can be password protected,…but there's only a single password for the entire database.…
Watch this course to learn how to leverage what you already know to take that next step. Adam Wilbert reviews the basics of SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and introduces two workflows for migrating Access data: one using a simple export/import process and the other using the free SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA). He also shows how to convert Access to SQL data types, link Access to SQL data via an ODBC connection, and address special concerns for Access 2010 data.
