Are you considering an upgrade to a more modern version of SQL Server? Are you choosing between SQL Server 2016 or SQL Server 2017? If so, then my advice is to upgrade to SQL Server 2017 as I explain in this post.
The release of SQL Server technology provides lots of interesting new features for SQL administrators and developers to ponder. The Community Technology Preview (CTP) 2.0 for SQL Server vNext (generally called SQL Server 2017) is no exception. Many updates have been implemented in the existing features and services of the application. In this blog post, I discuss what is new in the database engine of SQL Server 2017 from a database administrator (DBA) perspective.
