Re-posted from the Official Microsoft Blog.
In his latest blog post, Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft Data Group, Joseph Sirosh, talks about the new SQL Server 2016, how it is helping businesses get ahead of the curve, and what industry analysts and our customers think.
SQL Server 16 supports hybrid transactional and analytical processing, advanced analytics and machine learning, mobile BI, data integration, always encrypted query processing capabilities and in-memory transactions with persistence. It is perhaps the world’s only relational database to be “born cloud-first,” with the majority of features first deployed and tested in Azure – across 22 global datacenters and billions of requests per day. In other words, it is customer tested and battle ready.
Indeed, Microsoft is delivering on a vision that no other company can match across data, intelligence and cloud. We are the only company recognized as a leader across data platforms and cloud by Gartner in both vision and execution, in database, business intelligence, advanced analytics, data warehouse, cloud infrastructure and cloud application platforms.
With all its built-in capabilities, SQL Server 2016 delivers not just a relational database, but an entire data platform for your business with incredibly low TCO (total cost of ownership).
