Breakthrough performance and faster insights across cloud and on-premises
Build mission-critical applications using high-performance, in-memory security technology across OLTP, data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics. SQL Server 2014 is leader for these workloads, according to Gartner, and uses a common set of tools to deploy and manage databases both on-premises and in the cloud.
SQL Server 2014 accelerates mission critical applications with a new in-memory OLTP engine that can deliver 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)
Platform for hybrid cloud
SQL Server 2014 was designed to work in a hybrid environment that spans on-premises and the cloud. New tools in SQL Server and Microsoft Azure make it even easier to build patching, 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 Microsoft’s global datacenters.
