Introducing SQL Server 2016

Microsoft® SQL Server 2016 offers all of the features and benefits you’ve come to expect: smooth performance, tough security and intuitive analytics. Plus, it’s specifically designed to excel in hybrid cloud environments.


Industry leader

You can build intelligent apps for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) and more with leading scalability using SQL Server from Microsoft.


A secure database

SQL Server is the least vulnerable database for six years running, according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).


Data powerhouse

SQL Server delivers an easier, streamlined workload mobility experience between your data centre, private cloud and Microsoft Azure®.


Mobile intelligence

Experience accessible data you can use. Receive insights on any device — online or offline — at one-fifth the cost of other solutions.


Advanced analytics

Keep all of your data and analytics in-house and close to home. Analyse your data directly within the SQL Server database using R statistics language, without having to move it out of your database.

Make the move.

Now you can easily move between platforms, with Insight’s guidance. A new Microsoft license migration incentive gives you the ability to transition from Oracle® servers to SQL Server if you have an existing account or sign up for a new Server Cloud Enrollment (SCE) account — and it makes you eligible for free licenses.

With this incentive through the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement, simply purchase Software Assurance for SQL Server and get the licenses for free. You’ll also receive hands-on labs, instructor-led training and subsidised deployment services.
