Microsoft SQL Server 2016 is a relational database platform that brings a new set of technologies, features, and services to SQL Server. SQL Server 2016 supports mission-critical applications such as analytics, in-memory databases, business intelligence (BI), and online transaction processing (OLTP).
SQL Server 2016 includes database innovations that deliver new levels of efficiency, performance, security, and availability. It includes new features such as Always Encrypted, In-Memory OLTP, distributed query processing, and advanced data mining capabilities. SQL Server provides a robust solution for critical enterprise workloads at any scale. Scale-up solutions that provide partitioning enable IT to isolate disparate workloads and production, development, and testing environments on a single server platform. Reducing the number of databases and server platforms simplifies IT operations and reduces operating and licensing costs as well.
