Microsoft SQL Server 2014 builds on the mission-critical capabilities delivered in the prior release by making it easier and more cost effective to develop high-performance applications, enterprise ready Big Data assets, and Business Intelligence solutions that help customers make better decisions, faster. SQL Server 2014 uses in-memory technology across OLTP, data warehousing, business intelligence, and analytics workloads without having to buy expensive add-ons or high-end appliances. SQL Server 2014 uses a common set of tools to deploy and manage databases both on-premises and in the cloud, which makes it easier for customers to take advantage of the cloud with existing skills.
SQL Server 2014 was designed to work in a hybrid environment that spans on-premises and the cloud and has new tools that make it even easier to build back-up and disaster recovery solutions with Microsoft Azure. These tools provide an easy on-ramp to the cloud for on-premises SQL Server databases, enabling customers to use their existing skills to take advantage of Microsoft’s global datacenters.
