Microsoft SQL Server 2016 is a reliable, productive and intelligent data platform.
SQL Server 2016 is available in two editions - Standard and Enterprise, which not only differ from each other technically, but also have to be licensed differently.
SQL Server Standard offers database management for your core business and business intelligence. It is not suitable for business-critical areas, but can be operated with minimal IT effort.
SQL Server Enterprise includes valuable data center capabilities for mission-critical databases, business intelligence, and advanced analytics workspaces.
The previous edition SQL Server Business Intelligence and SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) are now covered by the SQL Server 2016 Enterprise edition.
Transform your business-critical applications into intelligent applications with SQL Server 2016. The first database created in the cloud that sets new standards for the pace of innovation.
The next step for SQL Server
SQL Server 2016 delivers breakthrough capabilities through built-in in-memory performance and operational analytics. Comprehensive SQL Server security features such as the new Always Encrypted technology help protect your data at rest and in motion and further optimize the AlwaysOn high availability and disaster recovery solution.

With built-in mobile business intelligence (BI) capabilities, create high-quality visual reports for users across the organization and on any device. They also enable you to access business information in the office or on the road, online or offline.
With the Stretch Database you benefit from the advantages of the scalable cloud - thanks to the dynamic stretching of warm and cold transaction data in Microsoft Azure, your data is always available in the event of queries.
