SQL Server 2017

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. As a database server, it is a software product with the primary function of storing and retrieving data as requested by other software applications—which may run either on the same computer or on another computer across a network (including the Internet).

Microsoft markets at least a dozen different editions of Microsoft SQL Server, aimed at different audiences and for workloads ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications with many concurrent users.

The big news with the release of SQL Server 2017, is that it’s the first time SQL Server is available on the Linux platform. Microsoft releasing one of its major software platforms on Linux is big, and represents Microsoft’s shift towards being a more open source-oriented company. The Linux distributions supported include RedHat Enterprise Linux, SuSE Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. You can also run SQL Server 2017 in Docker containers, which is an option many development shops may consider for rapid deployment of development databases.

SQL Server on Linux uses the same code as SQL Server 2017 on Windows, with the exception of a platform abstraction layer that manages OS-specific calls.
