MS SQL Server database is built up of various database components, like tables, views, indexes, rules, stored procedures, and triggers. These database components are data structures that fulfill different purposes for MS SQL Server database users. While all the components have their own significance, three most commonly used components that are fundamental in the operation of the database are discussed below:
Stored procedures in MS SQL Server databases are groups of T-SQL statements that are mainly used to simplify the process of development of the database. These stored procedures are precompiled and thus increase the performance of your database. Furthermore, these procedures also allow the database user to reduce the code to a single line, which is further helpful in reducing the network traffic. Moreover, a database administrator can also grant permissions to run a stored procedure independently.
View, in literal meaning, is a kind of a virtual table that comprises of columns from more than one table. This database object serves as a security mechanism as they restrict data like, particular rows/ columns saved in the table, rows derived by using join operations, statistical summary of the data, and subsets of views and columns.
Triggers created in MS SQL Server database are procedure codes that do not require any user for execution. These database components are executed implicitly in response to a particular event. These database components are mainly used to maintain integrity of important information saved in the SQL Server database. The main advantages of using triggers are prevention of changes, maintaining changes (log, audit, and enhance), enforcing business rules, replicate data, and enhance database performance.
While all the above three components enhance the security and performance of the database, they are also likely to get corrupt due to various reasons, such as application malfunction, virus attacks, human errors, and more. In such situations, it is beneficial to restore them from an updated backup. However, if in case, the database user has not created any backup or backup fails to restore the database, then the user needs to opt for a commercial SQL Database Repair application.
