There are several ways to implement data sources and you can even build your databases from text files that are coming to your system. It is important to note here that you can use the SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) provided to simplify your life by loading data from different databases and other data sources into one single database instance of SQL Server. It is also important to note that the text interface provides a great deal of flexibility if you are dealing with heterogeneous systems to get data out. Please remember that SSIS is outside the scope of this series. In our case, we are going to deal simply with an SQL Server database as our source.
