View the new capabilities of SQL Server 2019
SQL Server 2019 features
Break down data silos
Gain insights from all your data by querying across your entire data estate—SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Cosmos DB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Oracle, Teradata, and others—without moving or replicating the data.
Run SQL Server anywhere
Use SQL Server with Windows and Linux containers, plus deploy and manage your deployments using Kubernetes.
#1 in performance
Get record-breaking performance on Windows and Linux. SQL Server consistently leads across the TPC-E OLTP workload, TPC-H data warehousing workload, and real-world application performance benchmarks.1
Intelligent database capabilities
Upgrade and modernize your SQL Server database on-premises, in the cloud, and at the edge. Database compatibility certification eliminates the risk of application incompatibility. Use in-memory database capabilities such as persistent memory support and memory-optimized tempdb to improve performance for your mission critical workloads.
Fewest vulnerabilities for nine years
Protect data at rest and in motion with a database that has the fewest vulnerabilities of any major platform for nine years running in the National Institute of Standards and Technologies National Vulnerabilities Database.2
Built-in security and compliance
Use built-in features for data classification, data protection, and monitoring and alerts. SQL Server 2019 monitors, identifies, and provides alerts on suspicious activity—even identifying and remediating security gaps and misconfigurations.
Always encrypted data enclaves
Encrypt sensitive data and execute rich computations on encrypted data, plus enable customized data access based on role with complex row filtering.
Gain mission-critical uptime, fast failover, and improved TCO using cloud disaster recovery replicas and always on availability groups.
Accelerated database recovery
Greatly improves database availability by enabling fast and consistent database recovery regardless of the number or size of active transactions.
Self-service BI on any device
Explore visual data and quickly discover patterns to make better, faster decisions with Power BI Report Server, which is included with your SQL Server Software Assurance license.
Connect all your data
Combine data from almost any source using the extensive connector library and new transformations in SSAS tabular models.
Visual data exploration
Find the answers behind the data with visual data exploration and interactive analysis of data lakes data using SQL Server BI tools.
Highly scalable cloud services
Build highly scalable cloud services on Azure, and get a unified SQL platform built on the industry-leading performance of SQL Server—for limitless scalability, intelligent performance, and built-in security. Migrate to Azure without redesigning your apps and improve the performance of your existing applications.
