SQL Server authorized computer training classes are at ONLC Training Centers—a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner. SQL Server is the foundation of Microsoft’s comprehensive data platform.
SQL Server delivers breakthrough performance for mission-critical applications, using in-memory technologies, faster insights from any data to any user in familiar tools like Excel, and a resilient platform for building, deploying, and managing solutions that span on-premises and cloud.
SQL Server 2016 represents a huge leap forward for the data platform with faster transactions and queries, advanced analytics, and new hybrid cloud scenarios.
SQL Server 2016 and 2014 / 2012 enable customers to build mission-critical applications and Big Data solutions using high-performance, in-memory technology across OLTP, data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics workloads.
