Databases

A database in SQL Server is made up of a collection of tables. These tables contain data and other objects, such as views, indexes, stored procedures, user-defined functions, and triggers that are defined to support activities performed with the data. The data stored in a database is typically related to a particular subject or process, such as inventory information for a manufacturing warehouse.

This section provides the information that is required to understand, design, implement, and optimize databases and database snapshots.
