We’re excited to announce that we are bringing SQL Server on Linux—another step towards making SQL Server, our industry-leading data management and business analytics platform, for any data, to run any application, anywhere.

MORE OF THE DATA PLATFORM YOU WANT

Built on SQL Server 2016, SQL Server on Linux gives you the power to build and deploy intelligent applications on a single data management and business analytics platform. Take advantage of SQL Server’s low total cost of ownership, your existing tools and skills and new innovations battle-tested in the cloud.

We’ll continue to make it easier for you to work with data of any type, size, and speed using the tools, languages, and frameworks you want to use in a trusted cloud, hybrid, or on-premises environment. It’s another step to make SQL Server simpler and more accessible.

What developers need to know

Take advantage of Microsoft–created database connectivity drivers and open-source drivers that enable developers to build any application using the platforms and tools of their choice.
