Microsoft has released a new preview build of SQL Server 2016 that makes it possible for enterprises to scale their on-premises databases into Microsoft's Azure cloud computing service without making any changes to the application. The company is calling it "bottomless capacity." Microsoft also said that the feature would enable companies to move their less valuable "cold" data to low-cost cloud storage while keeping their high-value data on their own servers.

The SQL Server update also boasts excellent security and simple deployment. "You turn it on, and it starts to work," said Mark Jewett, director of product marketing for Microsoft's Cloud Platform division.
