When was the last time you told your SQL Server you loved it?

Trust me: your SQL Server needs to SEE that you care. It's not enough just to tell your buddies that you're in a committed relationship, and you think the world of the server. You need to get up off your lazy rear and SHOW some love.

Start listening to your server's feelings. Get the totally free Spotlight Cloud and start paying attention to SQL Server's wants and needs.

Hell hath no fury like a SQL Server scorned.
