I was in a similar situation, and what I did was to use Nintex Workflow to do an "execute SQL" action to write new form submissions out to a database I use purely for reporting purposes. If you don't have Nintex Workflow, ilovesharepoint has an "Execute SQL" SPD add-in for SP2010. The only issue I found is, because of how workflows work; you cannot easily ...

It is not possible to run it using MySQL server. You can use express edition for simple tasks but if your databases go more than 4GB I suggest you use many web apps instead (divide the work). For big companies it will be impossible to use SQL express edition so you would have to buy SQL Server. MySQL is not an available solution.

SharePoint lists consist of rows and columns that store data in a similar fashion to a traditional relational database management system such as SQL Server. However, a benefit of lists is that SharePoint includes Web Parts that provide simple methods for managing the data. If the data was stored in a database, it would require custom user interface ...

Thanks for your reply. I managed to sort this yesterday. I had to edit the versions of the database due to a Schema mismatch error. After that I was able to create a new Site Collection and add the restored database as the Content Database for that site.

Yes you can leverage the same database server across multiple installs. The only thing you should take care of is to use unique "Database" names so it will not conflict with each other. For example: Append "SP2010" to all databases that are created for SharePoint 2010. Also you should increase the server capacity to support both. Sharepoint 2010 and ...

You can try: Removing the service application without deleting the database Using SQL Management Studio to rename the database to a new, non-conflicting name Provision the service application pointing to the renamed database Step by step: ...

Delete your web application. Create a new one. Take care that the authentication mode is identical with the initial web application in which your backed up site collection has been created. Do not directly assign your restored content database but let Sharepoint create a new (empty) content database. Next, from your Central Administration => Application ...

Of course it will be, however, it's also not recommended to touch the database directly. Perhaps you could do this for the reading part only, but use the SP Api to write?

You will have to use SQL Aliases. Basically you backup and move all your databases to the different sql server, stop all sharepoint services, and through aliases you can point the backend to a different sql server: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc512725(v=office.15).aspx

It seems you are putting a heavy load on the server and that cannot be handled by the SQL Server itself. I would suggest splitting it into chunks, executing one by one and also increase the timeout to something relatively better for the particular query. I think it is ok to increase timeout upto 90 seconds depending on the situation and then can rollback ...
