Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core

SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition provides larger enterprises with a powerful newer version of Microsoft's proven relational data platform that combines all critical database, reporting, and analytics capabilities with maximum performance. SQL Server Enterprise Edition also offers new comprehensive features, plus virtually unlimited virtualization and comprehensive business intelligence - at a high level of service - for mission-critical workloads and critical data analytics.

This SQL Server Enterprise Edition is ideally suited to meet all the requirements of a modern, high-performance relational database management system - as is typical for the provision of enterprise resource planning systems, ERP software and CRM systems. It provides all the important functions to make Microsoft SQL Server a comprehensive, secure data platform in many enterprise environments, with various options for use: Choose between different development languages and data types as well as operating systems to provide SQL Server not only for Windows but also for Linux and Linux-based Docker containers - as well as between the options of running locally or in the cloud. Benefit from new insights through In-Database Advanced Analytics with Python or R as well as interactive visualizations including many performance improvements in Master Data Services and Reporting Services.

At Wiresoft you will find the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core Edition as legally usable used software at a significantly lower price compared to new software - with all the advantages of this edition in terms of performance and security. The licensing of the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition is also exclusively core-based for used software. Detailed information on the functional areas of SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core as well as the related Microsoft licensing terms  can be found below.

What's new in SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core? The most important features of SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core at a glance

The Enterprise edition of SQL Server 2017 offers the maximum features and scalability available for this version. In addition to unlimited virtualization, it also provides advanced high availability with Always On availability groups, failover on multiple databases and readable secondary replicas, as well as Transparent Data Encryption and compatibility reporting via SQL Server Audit and Advanced Data Integration with fuzzy grouping including lookups, further also the creation of mobile reports and KPIs.

Additional Business Intelligence features include enhancements to multi-dimensional models, tabular models and data mining, as well as DirectQuery storage mode and access to the Power BI reporting server. With extensive integration of machine learning features, SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core provides full parallelism for R and Python analytics, including the ability to run both on GPUs as well.

In the areas described close below, the respective specifications apply to the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core edition in terms of functionalities as well as their scalability, performance and high availability, among others:

New database engine features

SQL Server 2017 Enterprise includes three new enhancements in adaptive query processing: Adaptive Joints, batch mode memory allocation feedback, and overlapping execution of table value functions with multiple statements. New dynamic management lists and automatic database optimization - which provides insight into query performance issues, suggests solutions and automatically fixes identified problems - improve performance.

CLR assemblies can now be added to a list of trusted assemblies; further, new availability group functionality includes support for read scaling without clusters, setting minimum replicas for commit availability groups, and the ability to migrate from Windows to Linux across operating systems.

SQL Server Analysis Services

Key SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) enhancements include the DAX editor for SSDT and optimizations to tabular models, with improved object-level security when saving metadata; a tabular mode is also suggested as a default installation option for Analysis Services. With Get Data, new data sources are available in Power Query; existing data sources are supported in M queries. Using Date Relationships, relationships based on date fields can be easily created.

SQL Server Integration Services

In SSIS the Scale Out function offers changed as well as new features, among others the execution of SSIS on multiple PCs has been simplified. Scale Out master now supports high availability, and the failover handling of the execution logs of Scale Out workers has also been improved. The feature also includes the Use32BitRuntime parameter to trigger execution, making it DABEI much easier to run SSIS on multiple computers. Furthermore, SSIS Catalog has another global property to specify the default mode when deploying SSIS packages and also supports SQL Server on Linux: SSIS packages can be executed on Linux via the command line.

SQL Server Reporting Services

In SSRS, comments are available for reports to add collaboration with other users, and attachments with user comments can be integrated.

In Report Generator and SQL Server Data Tools, native DAX queries can be created for table data models supported by SQL Server Analysis Services.

SQL Server Master Data Services

In MDS, a sorted list on entities, collections, and hierarchies can be viewed via  the Explorer page, and performance has been improved for serving millions of rows.

SQL Server Machine Learning Services

In SQL Server 2017 release, the previous SQL Server R Services have been renamed SQL Server Machine Learning Services, as Python is now supported in addition to the R programming language. The Machine Learning services can therefore be used to run Python or R scripts, to deploy R and Python models that do not require SQL Server, while the Microsoft Machine Learning server can be installed. Developers also have access to the ML and AI libraries for Python in the open source environment.

Use of Linux

Users can now also use Linux to access SQL Server; here, as with C++ applications, the connection to SQL Server 2017 is through the Open Database Connectivity interface. Likewise, Java applications can also be used through the Java Database Connectivity driver.

Core licensing of SQL Server 2017 Enterprise

Only the core licensing introduced by Microsoft with the 2016 Server release applies to the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise edition. The Server/CAL licensing available for other editions is therefore not available here. Core-based licensing uses a different licensing metric than older versions of SQL Server, where it did not matter how many cores a processor contained: Now their number is the basis for determining license requirements. This licensing model by cores also applies to hybrid use and cloud deployments.

In cloud-compliant licensing, one core license is required for each of two cores. The total license requirement thus results from the maximum number of cores per processor. All physical cores of a server require their own core license. The minimum number of licenses per server is always eight. Microsoft has defined the following conditions for this:

  • At least 8 core licenses are required for each processor
  • At least 16 core licenses are required for each server

Core licenses for SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition are available as packages of 2.
