Scheduled maintenance on our windows servers

Update: Maintenance of server BH-Plesk-MSSQL1.webhostbox.net is completed.

 

******************************************************

Update : Due to unforeseen reasons we have to extend the maintenance of BH-Plesk-MSSQL1.webhostbox.net for 1 more hour.

We appreciate your patience.

Please feel free to contact our Support Team in case you have any queries.

 

*******************************************************

Maintenance Notice:

 

We are excited to announce that we will be upgrading MSSQL from SQL 2012 to SQL 2016.

 

Reason :

Upgrade MSSQL Version from SQL 2012 to SQL 2016. This will help us to improve the performance, enable new features and enhance the security of the server.

 

The new features available are :

1.Query Store: The Query Store feature maintains a history of query execution plans with their performance data, and quickly identifies queries that have gotten slower recently, allowing administrators or developers to force the use of an older, better plan if needed.

2.Polybase: This feature will benefit you if your regular data processing involves dealing with a lot of large text files -- they can be stored in Azure Blob Storage or Hadoop, and queried as if they were database tables.

3.Stretch Database: The basics of Stretch Database are that some part of your tables (configurable or automated) will be moved into an Azure SQL Database in the cloud in a secure fashion. When you query those tables, the query optimizer knows which rows are on your server and which rows are in Azure, and divides the workload accordingly.

4.JSON Support: Providing the ability to quickly move JSON data into tables

5.Row Level Security: This restricts which users can view what data in a table, based on a function. SQL Server 2016 introduces this feature, which is very useful in multi-tenant environments where you may want to limit data access based on customer ID.

6.Always Encrypted: Always Encrypted is new functionality through the use of an enhanced client library at the application so the data stays encrypted in transit, at rest and while it is alive in the database.

7.In-Memory Enhancements: Optimally designed for high-speed loading of data with no locking issues or high-volume session state issues.
