If you are planning to use Microsoft SQL Server as a database backbone, you can use the Microsoft SQL Express which is free but has a cap of 100GB of storage space. Just keep that in mind. You can download Microsoft SQL Express 2019 from the link below.

I normally if not always download Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) as part of my install. Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is an integrated environment for managing any SQL infrastructure. SSMS provides tools to configure, monitor, and administer instances of SQL Server and databases. You can also use SSMS to deploy, monitor, and upgrade the data-tier components used by your applications, and build queries and scripts. You can download the SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) from the link below.
