Is It SQL?

This started as a simple SQL Server monitoring solution for my clients.

The Is It SQL server needs to have any any one of the following drivers installed:

All SQL Server installations from SQL Server 2008 on should have one of those installed. Please note that SQL Server DOES NOT need to be installed where this is running – just a driver.
