Microsoft PSS – SQL 2016 Series: It just runs faster | April updates

April 30, 2016 2 comments

Microsoft PSS Engineers have built a series on “It Just Runs Faster”!

“In the Sep 2014 the SQL Server CSS and Development teams performed a deep dive focused on scalability and performance when running on current and new hardware configurations. The SQL Server Development team tasked several individuals with scalability improvements and real world testing patterns. You can take advantage of this effort packaged in SQL Server 2016. – https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/sql-server-2016/”

SQL 2016 will run faster in many ways, without changing code.
 

The series kickoff is here:
