What's new in SQL Server 2016

Faster, Safer, Mobile

Conclusions

With SQL Server 2016, Microsoft is taking another step toward the cloud and mobility. In the future, databases are to be used not just as storage for locally run business applications, but also for use on multiple devices worldwide. In this way, the databases can be used more efficiently and can create analyses more quickly. Because both performance and security are improved, companies should take a look at the new version. Connecting to the cloud is optional; SQL Server 2016 can generally be run as a local database server without problem – like its predecessors, just more secure and faster.
