The Industry’s Most Secure Database

Protect Sensitive Data

At last, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server clients have access to all the same enterprise-grade security features found in SQL Server on Windows with no compromises, including Transparent Data Encryption, Backup Encryption, Always Encrypted, and Cell-Level Encryption.

SQL Server has been rated the least vulnerable database platform for the last seven years in a row by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

SQL Server continues to be the least vulnerable database 7 years in a row. Fewer vulnerabilities mean fewer patches and a lower probability of a data breach.

Data can be encrypted both at rest and in motion with the Always Encrypted feature, while SQL Agent allows you to schedule jobs such as regular data backup or replication.

Enterprise-Level Performance

Build High Performance, Highly-Available Applications

SQL Server allows you to scale across editions while maintaining a consistent programming surface, while providing up to 30x the transaction speed thanks to in-memory OLTP and up to 100x faster analytical queries with in-memory columnstore.

  • Query across both structured and unstructured data in Hadoop using PolyBase
  • Support for JSON and XML
  • In-memory technologies let you perform real-time operational analytics
  • Use the language of your choice with connectors for languages like Java, PHP, and Python
  • Deploy your SQL database the way you want to, with support for on-premises, cloud, hybrid, or hosted deployments
  • Granular control over database access
  • High availability and disaster recovery
  • Failover clustering
A Single, Complete Solution

Lower Total Cost of Ownership

SQL Server is packed with features so you won’t have to purchase any future add-ons. Everything you need to develop, build, and run next-generation intelligent applications is included in one price, reducing total cost of ownership by more than 12x compared with legacy database solutions.

Build your intelligent applications leveraging SQL Server on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to dramatically lower the cost of ownership for a fully supported, next-generation, database solution that is trusted by leading enterprise companies.
