Six reasons to consider SQL Server 2017 E-Book – especially if you’re on Linux

“Data is currency” is the rule of thumb in business. As with money, business data must be accessible, accurate, and usable across disparate contexts if an organization is to realize greater ROI while keeping costs under control. CIOs understand that the need to manage data—its location, composition, and utility—is as important as managing a balance sheet. For many companies, the solution is SQL Server, the industry gold standard for database management.But what about the many tech startups and cloud enterprises running open-source platforms? These organizations face challenges with reliably integrating, categorizing, and accessing all types of business data in an often-heterogeneous world of platforms, apps, and devices.

The good news is SQL Server 2017 runs on Linux. Two Linux-based organizations, Convergent Computing and dv01, migrated to SQL Server 2017 for the capabilities and tools to manage and optimize their data “currency.” They share their stories in the new e-book, SQL Server 2017 on Linux: Top Six Reasons Companies Make the Move.

In the e-book, leadership at Convergent and dv01 cover the benefits they gained with SQL on Linux, including:

  • Flexibility. Use familiar languages on the platform and cloud of your choice.
  • Performance. Take advantage of faster queries with simultaneous analytics and transaction processing.
  • Security. Protect your data at rest and in motion with centrally managed, Always Encrypted protection.
  • Cost. Expand your hardware options and achieve ROI more quickly with Linux.
