These solutions have the flexibility of being deployed on-premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment, and can be managed through a common and familiar tool set.

Mission-critical performance

SQL Server 2016 accelerates reliable, mission critical applications with a new in-memory OLTP engine that can deliver on average 10x, and up to 30x transactional performance gains. For Data Warehousing, the new updatable in-memory columnstore can query 100x faster than legacy solutions. SQL Server also delivers peace of mind as the most secure database five years in a row. (National Institute of Standards and Technology Comprehensive Vulnerability Database 4/17/2013, Market share from IDC 2013)

Faster insights on any data

Get to insights faster with a complete BI platform that speeds up how you access, analyze, clean and shape both internal and external data. With SQL Server 2016 and Power BI for Office 365, it is easy to connect every user in an organization to the right data they need to make better decisions, faster.

Platform for hybrid cloud

SQL Server 2016 was designed to work in a hybrid environment that spans on-premises and the cloud and has new tools that make it even easier to build back-up and disaster recovery solutions with Microsoft Azure. These tools provide an easy on-ramp to the cloud for on-premises SQL Server databases, enabling customers to use their existing skills to take advantage of Microsofts global datacenters.



Breakthrough, in-memory performance

With SQL Server 2016, new in-memory capabilities for transaction processing and enhancements for data warehousing complement our existing technologies for data warehousing and analytics. Scale and transform your business with, on average, a 10x performance gain for transaction processing while still using existing hardware, and a greater-than 100x performance gain for data warehousing.

I love many things about this software

What I like best in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Open Academic Device Cal, like any other Microsoft product, is the simple and easy to use user-interface (I guess most of us are familiar with Windows). I can make queries and scripts easily and without any trouble. Basic SQL knowledge is required. What I love most about MS SQL is the Profiler. It's very handy and it helped me a lot when debugging apps. It allows you to see what's "happening" on the server, what scripts are executed, along with the parameters, which does not seem to be supported by other RDBMS..

Makes it much easier

I like that Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Open Academic Device Cal makes it much easier to pull up the reports I need for a customer or employee. For many of the queries I run on SQL, I had to run as many as 6 or 7 queries on our cyberquery program to get all the information I needed. We mostly generate reports that have anything from sell reports, to item information, and whatever information we need to put together for several different types of requests from within our organization and our customers.

Moving in the right direction

Having worked with SQL server for over a decade, I have come to rely on its simplicity over some database systems, as well as the well established education and support system Microsoft has in place. Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Open Academic Device Cal allows us to reliably serve data to our products with trusted framework that has been in use across the organization for many years. SQL Server is not always the fastest to adapt new technologies and methodologies, but they are moving in the right direction with high availability, scaling, and cloud solutions. SQL Server on Linux support promises to make SQL server a more affordable option in the future, I highly recommend staying educated with the great support community online.
