 Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition offers increased uptime and better database recovery. With new support for Windows Server Core, the time required for the server to be down so that operating system patches can be applied has been cut in half.

With Database Recovery Advisor, major changes have been made to give database administrators more flexibility in how they restore databases with SQL Server Management Studio. The capability for cost-effect and fully redundant data protection has been added to SQL Server Management Studio with the new option to move logical copies of SQL Server databases directly to Microsoft SQL Azure.

 Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition makes it easier to manage access levels to and standard format of databases on both the server and in deployed application for individual users and groups.

With User-Defined Server Roles, server access can be easily fine-tuned to function and/or department.  For example, database programmers and database administrators need separate permissions for databases. Now you can create a role, with appropriate access, for administrators and programmers and assign specific user accounts to that role.

Default Schema for Groups enables you to assign a default database schema to all the users within a Windows group account, making it easy to customize the schema for each group.  

Reporting is also enhanced in Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with several new tools. Reporting Services, which is administered using a web interface, lets you prepare and deliver a wide array of printed and interactive reports within your organization.

Report Builder has an easy-to-use and intuitive interface that enables end users to build customized reports.

Data Mining Add-ins for Microsoft Office lets end users perform predictive analysis on data using Excel.

Important: Data Mining Add-ins for Microsoft Office are not supported in Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Office 2016.

Database development has improved in Microsoft SQL 2012 Standard Edition. SQL Server Data Tools give developers an integrated development environment, while the Data-tier Application Framework (DACFx) simplifies deployment and management of database applications from the server to the cloud.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition makes it much easier to manage content as an integrated part of an application. FileTable, which is new to this edition, streamlines content management in FILESTREAM blob storage. Full-text indexing has been enhanced for better performance and improved search functionality.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition supports both relational and non-relational data. It includes the ability to extend data across heterogeneous environments with industry standard APIs (ADO.NET, ODBC, JDBC, PDO, and, ADO) using a variety of platforms including PHP, C and C++, Java, Linux, and .NET.
