SQL vs SQL Server

The terms SQL and SQL Server are frequently misunderstood by beginners, as was mentioned in one of the earlier articles. I always made an effort to convey this right away to my students.

SQL is a query language. It is used to create queries that access or alter data stored in relational databases. It is a programming language with specialized functionality for managing data in relational database management systems or relational data stream management systems.

Microsoft created the relational database management system known as Microsoft SQL Server. It is a software product known as a database server, and its main job is to store and retrieve data as needed by other software applications. These applications may run on the same computer or on a different machine over a network. In short, SQL Server, on the other hand, is a proprietary program or an RDBMS tool that carries out the SQL statements.
