  2. Scalability Enhancement and Availability
  3. Power BI For Office 365
  4. Backup Encryption
  5. Microsoft Azure Integration

In-Memory across Workloads Built-in

It’s allows you to create memory-optimized database objects that enable more efficient data access **Remember select only Highly Utilized tables to be In-Memory**

that’s will improve performance by as much as 10 times, and improves scalability by 2-5 times.Per

It does this be minimizing the latency it takes to retrieve data.

This feature will be great for applications that need performance, have relatively short transactions, have a high degree of concurrent transactions with many connectionsIn-Memory

Scalability Enhancement and Availability

The number of logical processors has been increased to 640 and memory up to 4 TBs.

If SQL Server running in a virtual environment it’s up to 64 virtual processors and 1TB of memory

If you have a clustered SQL Server environment it’s will support up to 64 different nodes.

ABOUT High Availability the number of secondary Replica maximum from four to eight.


Power BI For Office 365

It’s a cloud-based business intelligence (BI) solution which provides data navigation and visualization capabilities

Power BI for Office 365 includes Power Query , Power Map , Powerpivot, and Power ViewBI
