SQL Server on Linux

Who doesn’t like Linux? I am glad to hear the announcement that was made regarding SQL Server now will be riding on Linux Server. SQL Server made an announcement on 03/07/2016 of their incredible year for data across the industry. They are kicking off a wave of launch active for SQL Server 2016 with availability later this year. Microsoft claims SQL Server 2016 is the most significant release which delivers:
  1. Groundbreaking security encryption capabilities that enable data to always be encrypted at rest, in motion and in-memory to deliver maximum security protection
  2. In-memory database support for every workload with performance increases up to 30-100x
  3. Incredible Data Warehousing performance with the #1, #2 and #3 TPC-H 10 Terabyte benchmarks for non-clustered performance, and the #1 SAP SD Two-Tier performance benchmark on windows
  4. Business Intelligence for every employee on every device – including new mobile BI support for IOS, Android and Windows Phone devices
  5. Advanced analytic using our new R support that enables customers to do real-time predictive analytic on both operational and analytic data
  6. Unique cloud capabilities that enable customers to deploy hybrid architectures that partition data workloads across on-premises and cloud based systems to save costs and increase agility
Executive Vice President, Scott Guthrie also announced his plans to bring SQL Server to Linux as well. SQL Server on Linux will provide customers with even more flexibility in their data solution. I am sure this is great news for anyone who have Linux Servers. There are no details on which Linux flavor will it support primarily. MS is targeting for mid-2017 and the preview is already available.

This huge change on Microsoft SQL Server part will bring more users and clients to use SQL Server. Now, the market of Windows Server will gradually go down. Don’t you think so? Who will use MS Server? Are they planning to retire Windows Server sometime soon? dbarepublic will update the information as it becomes available to us.
