The new Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition for Linux represents a major step towards making SQL Server a platform that gives customers choices of development languages, data types, on-premises and in the cloud, and across operating systems by bringing the power of SQL Server to Linux.

As demonstrated live on stage earlier this month at the PASS Summit in Seattle – the performance benefits are demonstrably greater when running ad on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12SP3 – and now the TPC benchmark results are in to prove it! You can watch Microsoft`s video demo for more details.

HPE, Microsoft, and SUSE closely collaborated to ensure industry-leading performance and security to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server latest update in 12SP3.

The numbers speak for themselves with an impressive new benchmark showcasing the world’s first “diskless database” and its scalable persistent memory capabilities reaching a world-wide performance record for non-clustered servers on the TPC-H @ 1000GB and first to break 1 million QphH.

It also brings hardware costs down by 32% when you compare HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 to Gen10 and 85% rack space reduction!

Check out the numbers posted on & HPE Performance Brief.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3, the latest update from SUSE, includes Persistent Memory Support which helps power this incredible performance. The new updates in SP3 for NVMe and enhanced NV-DIMM block device help create a platform for even better-performing SQL Server 2017 environments on HPE hardware. Build high-performing, intelligent applications and realize remarkable gains in performance while maintaining storage integrity.
