Data growth is exploding globally and yet expectations have never been higher for around-the-clock uptime. This is making it even harder to achieve the performance and robust security enterprises need for mission-critical workloads while keeping costs low.

SQL Server 2014 offers many capabilities for OLTP workloads, including higher performance with in-memory technology where customers see, on average, 10x and up to 30x improvement in transactional performance. In addition to higher performance, customers can better utilize their hardware investments by scaling resource allocation across compute, network, and now storage, with Windows Server 2012 R2.
