Microsoft SQL Server 2016 launches June 1

From InformationWeek

"IT pros, mark your calendars. Microsoft has confirmed it will make the final version of its SQL Server 2016 software generally available on June 1 2016.

The newest edition of Microsoft's data management and business analytics software will deliver a few significant new features previously unavailable in older versions. One of its new features, Always Encrypted, is a new security capability designed to protect active and resting data without affecting database performance.

Another is Stretch Database technology. This securely stretches OLTP data to Microsoft Azure on-demand without requiring an application change, so users have better access to their historical data. It also aims to cut storage costs and simplify IT operations.

Microsoft reports SQL Server 2016 is the ‘first born-in-the-cloud database’ thanks to features like Always Encrypted and Role Level Security, which have been validated in the Azure SQL Database.”
