SQL Server 2016 announced :)

Not sure if you guys have got a chance to grab updates from Microsoft Ignite event(Previously called TechEd), So here is a news for you. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced SQL Server 2016 day before yesterday. It’s not yet available to download for public, but they are saying it(public preview) will be available soon 🙂

Looks like they have lot of enhancements in encryption(Always Encrypted…sounds very similar to AlwaysON) area and cloud integration/BI/Polybase areas.

For data sheet and other details please check
