Customer Reviews

Based on 6 reviews
I like all of the uses

Both per user and per device licences of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Device Cal Open Govso you can decide which one you preffer. Windows Server 2016 is an active participant in your security scheme, protecting itself and its workloads. You can enhance this native protection in the following ways: Prevent accidental malware infection by restricting software usage. Only allow approved software to be used on the operating system, regardless of location.Maintain code integrity. Only allow permitted code to run on the operating system.Increase control and protection. This applies to deployments on premises and in the cloud. I myself like all of the new features announced.

Good customer support from My Choice software

I have limited experience with Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Device Cal Open GovL - but I like the direction it's going. Investments in PowerShell scripting will be make or break for administration - and the ability to extend the reach to cloud architecture will be welcome. Administrators with little cloud experience should embrace the native "connectedness" of it all. I like nano, but the focus on DSC will be a pain point for me. The steap learning curve can be avoided by contacting My Choice Software, do not expect such a good care from Microsoft.

Configure proper hardware

If configured correctly with the proper hardware, Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Device CAL can be incredibly powerful, delivering millions of data points in the blink of an eye. Even poorly constructed schema can be arranged in views to allow developers to harness SQL's performance benefits.If you're just starting with relational databases, you would probably be fine with opting for an open source solution. However, if you need a solution that can handle an enormous number of requests and return results with considerable speed, SQL is worth researching to see if it fits your needs.

Excellent for shift workers!

Ideal for multiple users on one device like our company. Basically, any business with shift system. Whats New Like!! Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Device Cal Open Govhas Shielded Virtual Machines. This new feature encrypts disk and state of virtual machines so only VM or tenant admins can access it. This protects your VMs from compromised or malicious administrators in the fabric (e.g., storage admins, backup admins, etc.). It also Hosts Guardian Service (HGS). This functionality authenticates host permissions. When a Shielded Virtual Machine is turned on, the HGS will check to see if the hosts are allowed to run the Shielded VM. The check is conducted through attestation and hardware-based boot measurements and via a new feature, Code Integrity, to determine whether a host meets the criteria as a healthy host%u2014and may run the Shielded VM.

Using it for YEARS

We've been using Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Device CAL for many years now and I honestly don't know how we could run our business with out it. The best part of it is how it integrates seamlessly with Windows Server products and makes configuration and updating so easy. If you're running Windows OSs you really need MS SQL. SQL is a complicated system and I wished MS SQL had more learning tools integrated in it. I've had to rely on 3rd party sources just to figure out how to perform backups or database maintenance.
