  • Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard

    Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition

    Microsoft's SQL Server 2016 is the ideal database management system behind websites and web-based applications. It provides a flexible platform for developers, supports ANSI SQL and also contains its own SQL implementation called T-SQL. It's perfect for data integration, reporting and analytics, all in one product. The 2016 release adds new security features such as data encryption, built-in JSON support, cloud integration, R analytics and more, along with numerous improvements and enhancements to already existing features.

    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.

  • Features

    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. 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 activities like malware and hacking.

    Better administration

    The SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) is one free to download and integrated environment which you can use to query, configure, design, and manage your databases and data warehouses in every SQL Server component, wherever they are - on your local computer, or in the cloud.

    Business intelligence

    Make better decisions with the improved business intelligence which helps collect, summarise and analyse raw data straight from your websites or applications.

    Integrated experience

    With SQL Server 2016, you get an excellent product that has everything you need for data-driven purposes. Integrated with Visual Studio and ASP.NET, SQL Server 2016 makes it easy to use and reach your data anytime, anywhere. You can take advantage of the integration of Microsoft Office products as well.

    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.

    In-Memory OLTP

    In-Memory OLTP was initially introduced in SQL Server 2014, however, it's been worked on and much further improved in SQL Server 2016. In-Memory OLTP is an element integrated into SQL Server that lets users run online transaction processing (OLTP) applications against information tables kept in system memory rather than on disks. In SQL Server 2016, Microsoft multiplied both the measurability and performance of In-Memory OLTP. It accumulated the suggested size of memory-optimized tables and expanded multiple log threads as well as the ability to form multiple plans for queries accessing in-memory tables.

    Stretch Database

    Stretch Database is a brand-new feature in Microsoft SQL Server 2016. It is a very nice feature because it gives you not only the capability of using your onsite instances of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 to extend (stretch) your data into your Microsoft Azure SQL database, but also complete and very precise control over how much data you stretch into the cloud. You can choose to extend part of a database table, a whole database table, or the entire database.

    SQL Server R Services

    R is an open-source programming language designed to create applications that can do very complex analytics. SQL Server R Services now supports the R programming language.

    Dynamic data masking

    Another new security enhancement to Microsoft SQL Server 2016 is dynamic data masking. This function gives DBAs the ability to, based on user privileges, control how much data can be seen by end users. If a user has basic privileges for accessing and viewing all the data, they will see blanks on their screens where the high-privilege data would be, while users with full access to the data can see everything on their screens.

  • Minimum Hardware Requirements

    • 4 GB (to make sure you get optimal performance, RAM should be increased as database files get larger).

    • x64 Processor: AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon 64, Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support, Intel Pentium IV with EM64T supportRecommended Processor Speed: 2GHz or higher.

    Please note that Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition can only be installed on a server with an x64 processor. Installation on servers with x86 processors is no longer supported by Microsoft.

    Minimum Hard Disk Space Requirements

    For installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition, your server must have at least 6 GB of free disk space.

    Minimum Software Requirements

    Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition requires the following software to be installed on the server:

    • Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard requires .NET Framework 4.6 for the Database Engine, Master Data Services, or Replication. Microsoft SQL Server 2016 setup automatically installs .NET Framework.

    You also have the option of manually installing .NET Framework by going to Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (Web Installer) for Windows.

    If you need additional assistance with the installation of .NET Framework 4.6, you can find a comprehensive guide at .NET Framework Deployment Guide for Developers.

    • You must apply KB2919355on computers running Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 before you can install .NET Framework 4.6.

    These required components will also be installed by SQL Server Setup:

    • SQL Server Native Client

    • SQL Server Setup support files

    Note: For IT professionals, complete details on the specifications of and requirements for Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition are available from the Microsoft website.
