Microsoft SQL Server 2016

What's New in SQL Server 2016?


Microsoft SQL Server’s business-class data platform capabilities are the most widely used on the planet. With an install base in the millions, it makes sense to rely on a database that’s been proven worldwide.

SQL Server 2016 delivers breakthrough mission-critical capabilities with in-memory performance and operational analytics built-in, while comprehensive security features help protect your data at rest and in motion.

With the recent support discontinuation for SQL Server 2005, there's never been a better time to upgrade! 


The New Powerful Capabilities Transforming Data into Intelligent Action

As your business grows so do the demands on the databases that you run. Whether you are using them for inventory, online sales transactions or customer management, outdated databases can create delays and cause customer dissatisfaction.

New features such as enhanced in-memory performance are expected to provide up to 30x faster transactions, more than 100x faster queries than disk-based relational databases and real-time operational analytics.

Organizations can benefit from deeper insights into their data with new capabilities and SQL Server 2016 promises to go beyond business intelligence to perform advanced analytics directly within their database and present rich visualizations for business insights on any device.

  • Most secure, mission critical database with everything built-in

  • Consistent experiences on-premises and cloud
