        We've always counted on SQL Server as our database backend. It has served us well over the years. It isn't the cheapest part of our stack, but with the plethora of tools provided by 3rd parties, we have found an incredible and scalable method of keeping our data available and easy to maintain.

        Defacto, industry standard for backend relational databases. Entity Framework makes designing, migrating & maintaining SQL Server databases a breeze. LocalDB is especially helpful during development.
