  SQL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SQL (commonly expanded to Structured Query Language — see History for the term's derivation) is the most popular computer language used to create, modify, retrieve and manipulate data from relational database management systems.
SQL was adopted as a standard by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) in 1986 and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) in 1987.
One joke about SQL is that "SQL is not structured, nor is it limited to queries, nor is it a language." This is founded on the notion that pure SQL is not a classic programming language since it is not Turing-complete.

 Microsoft SQL Server - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SQL Server is commonly used by businesses for small- to medium-sized databases, but the past five years have seen greater adoption of the product for larger enterprise databases.
SQL Server 7.0 was the first true GUI based database server and was a rewrite away from the legacy Sybase code.
As a result, the relative strength and viability of SQL Server is directly affected by the relative strengths and weaknesses of the Microsoft platform, unlike Oracle and DB2 which both run on numerous platforms, including Windows and fast growing Linux.

SQL was revised in 1992, and that version is known as SQL-92.
SQL, although defined by both ANSI and ISO, has many variations and extensions, most of which are of a proprietary nature, such as Oracle Corporation's PL/SQL or Sybase and Microsoft's Transact-SQL.
One joke about SQL is that "SQL is neither Structured, nor a Language." This is (in part) founded on the notion that SQL isn't a Turing complete language.
