SQL Server 2022

As your trusted technology partner I wanted to tell you about the exciting cloud-connected features in SQL Server 2022 and how customers are using them to solve common challenges by enabling:

  • Business continuity through disaster recovery with fully-managed Azure SQL Managed Instance
  • Seamless analytics for your on-premises operational SQL Server data with Azure Synapse Link
  • Visibility and governance over your entire data estate with Microsoft Purview


Beyond connecting to Azure, SQL Server 2022 also delivers accelerated query performance with Intelligent Query Processing innovation and enhanced security through SQL Server Ledger to ensure data integrity.

In order to build on this innovation, Microsoft is adjusting the price of SQL Server by 10% starting January 2023. For customers in the cloud or ready to migrate, there is no change to pay-as-you-go pricing for SQL IaaS or Azure SQL Managed Instance.

Please let me know if you’d like to learn more about SQL Server 2022. You can also talk to your account manager about a solutions assessment if you want to learn more about moving your data to the cloud.
