Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition

In Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition the focus is to move analytics to data instead of data to analytics.

One of the major changes in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition is that it has many of the capabilities that were available only in the Enterprise edition in previous Microsoft SQL Server releases.

Microsoft listened to the feedback that database administrators, database programmers, and application developers gave them about what the previous Standard editions of Microsoft SQL Server lacked, and Microsoft responded by including a lot of that functionality in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard.

This makes database administration, application development, and database programming much easier because they can change, upgrade, and deploy more rapidly to meet quickly changing business needs.

The most obvious difference now between Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition and Microsoft SQL 2016 Enterprise Edition is the level of scalability, but for small and medium-sized companies this will not be an issue.

In Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition you now have many of the business intelligence tools that support advanced warehousing, analytics, data extract, transform, and load operations. Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard also includes SQL Server Data Tools, which give you the ability to develop projects in direct relationship to Integration Services, Reporting Services and Analysis Services.

Log Shipping

Log shipping is a part of implementing a solid onsite disaster recovery strategy. With log shipping implemented, transaction log files are automatically backed up from a production server. Then these log files are restored to a standby (backup) server. By maintaining a current copy of transaction log files on a backup server, in addition to a current copy of your database(s), you have the ability to quickly hot swap a production server that is unavailable for any reason.

Database Mirroring

Database mirroring is also a part of a good disaster recovery strategy. The process of database mirroring is simply to have two identical copies of your current database(s) on more than one server (usually in a small organization, this will be done from your primary server to your standby server).


Replication works in a multi-server environment (servers can be virtual machines – VMs – which is fairly common in small to medium-sized organizations where IT resources are limited). What replication does is to distribute data and data objects from one database to another database on an active server. This reduces the load on the primary database, giving you faster performance.

Failover Clustering

A failover cluster refers to two or more servers (physical or virtual) that are running cluster-enable applications so that if one or more of the servers becomes unavailable, the other one kicks in and restarts the applications automatically. Failover clustering is a good way to ensure that server downtime is minimized, especially for mission-critical applications.

Data Compression

The methodology behind data compression is straightforward. Look for sections of data that repeat in a table. Then store only the unique table data using a row, page, or column store index. This can significantly improve the performance of your databases and can also shrink the size of them quite dramatically.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition also has enhanced security features both at the server level and the database level to provide better protection for your data from malicious activity like malware and hacking.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition is a major revamp from Microsoft that addresses modern business practices and needs, regardless of size. And that makes this edition of Microsoft SQL Server an excellent investment for your organization.
