Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard
SQL Server 2016 Standard provides enterprises with a reliable, scalable, hybrid database platform to build intelligent, mission-critical applications, as this edition includes all the necessary features as well as the corresponding memory performance, including advanced security with new features as well as in-database query capabilities and analytics, plus Hadoop and Cloud integration, R-analysis, and more.
In-memory performance, advanced analytics functions as well as real-time analysis of operational data Plus the extended reporting area are also among the features particularly worth mentioning.
The edition SQL Server 2016 Standard is available at Wiresoft as used software - the price is thereby more favorable than that of comparable new commodity - as far as this version of SQL Server is still regularly offered at all. This SQL Server license can be used to its full extent even when used and thus offers the maximum scalability, performance and security typical of the edition; this makes it particularly attractive for companies or organizations of smaller size that use a correspondingly smaller Server, so that the combination of server license and CALs represents the most economical solution for them. The licensing of this used Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Edition is done according to the official Microsoft license management terms. Detailed information about the new optimizations and features included in SQL Server 2016 Standard and how to license them correctly can be found in the following sections.

SQL Server 2016 Analysis Services offers improved performance and functionality for, among other things, creation, filtering, processing for table model databases - including integration with the R statistical language: R scripts can thus be executed directly on the SQL Server and no longer need to be exported from the SQL database and then imported into R for an analysis, which not only saves time but also provides greater security - as well as:
- Database Consistency Checker - to check database consistency to immediately detect potential data corruption issues.
- Direct live querying of external data supports additional data sources including Azure SQL, Oracle and Teradata.
- New DAX functions as well as namespace Services

- Data can be organized in the form of models and rules for updating can be defined - including the authorization of specific individuals to execute them.
- Master data sets can also be released for individual persons in Excel.
- Filtering by domain-based attributes, as well as synchronization of entities for sharing across models
- Approval workflows via change sets as well as new levels for improved security
- Custom indexes for improved query performance
Reporting Services (SSRS)
SQL Server Reporting Services helps users create, manage and deliver mobile or paginated reports.
- Analysis Services provides analytical data from reporting and Business Services reports that can also be used for Client applications or Business intelligence tools from other vendors.
- Reports can be generated from different data sources as well as published in various formats and made available to employees via a browser in the web portal, via e-mail or on a mobile device.
- Other features include the new web-based reporting portal with KPI feature as well as the new Publisher specifically designed for mobile report creation
- New engine with HTML5 support for rendering reports

In terms of security features, the 2016 version of Microsoft SQL Server has the following enhancements, among others:
- Always Encrypted protects sensitive data such as credit card numbers and stores it encrypted in the or SQL Server database. Different roles define access rights, whereby e.g. admins can only manage data but do not have direct access to it.
- Row-Level Security enables the implementation of access restrictions for individual data rows, so that a single employee is only authorized to access certain data rows.
- Dynamic Data Masking simplifies application security coding and prevents unauthorized users from accessing sensitive data.

Licensing of the edition SQL Server 2016 Standard per Server/CALs
For SQL Server 2019 Standard Edition, combined licensing of Server and complementary client access licenses (CALs) is available for either User or endpoints, so these must be purchased separately. The Microsoft licensing metric makes the following statements about this:
- A separate server license is required for each Server (whether physical or virtual) running a SQL Server 2016 Standard edition.
- This also applies to SQL Server instances running in containers and equated to virtual machines.
- For each user or end device that is to access a licensed SQL Server, a separate client access license (CAL) is also required, the version of which is at least identical or, if applicable, also entitles access to a higher version; these CALs must be purchased separately, they are not software and are also available second-hand from Wiresoft as separate Microsoft products.
Licensing with the Server/CAL variant is particularly suitable for companies that require client access licenses for a relatively manageable number of users or end devices, so that the costs for SQL-Server licensing are lower than for the alternative Core-based licensing.
