SQL Server 2016

Build intelligent, mission-critical applications using a scalable, hybrid database platform that has everything built in—from in-memory performance and advanced security to in-database analytics.

Made for hybrid cloud

Get a consistent platform and tooling for easier workload mobility between your datacenter, private cloud, or Microsoft Azure.

In-database advanced analytics

Analyze data directly within the SQL Server database—without moving the data—using R, the popular statistics language.

End-to-end mobile BI

Transform data into actionable insights. Deliver insights on any device—online or offline—at one-fifth the cost of other self-service solutions.

Advanced security

Protect data at rest and in motion. SQL Server is the least vulnerable database for six years running in the NIST vulnerabilities database.

Industry leading

Build mission-critical, intelligent apps for online transaction processing (OLTP) with breakthrough scalability, performance, and availability.
