Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core
The SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core edition is currently the most up-to-date version of Microsoft's globally deployed reliable relational data platform; because it provides all the currently important database, reporting and analysis functions required in a modern company that uses, for example, enterprise resource planning systems, ERP software or CRM systems, etc. and must be able to rely on a powerful relational database management system (RDMS) that can meet all these requirements and is also cloud-enabled.
SQL Server Standard Edition 2-Core provides a basic data management and business intelligence database that enables small and medium-sized companies in particular to reliably run typical business applications. For this purpose, the Standard Edition offers various development tools that are intended for both local use and the cloud, and enables efficient database management by requiring minimal IT resources.
Highly scalable cloud services as well as Always Encrypted with secure enclaves and extensibility - including Java language integration - are among important integrated functionalities here. Comprehensive integration of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), with Apache Spark as well as other analytics tools fully supported by Microsoft, simplifies the management of your comprehensive data in the form of Big Data clusters in SQL Server 2019 Standard. Added to this is the use of containers for the entire data set in all processes - starting with development and ending with production.
Furthermore, this SQL Server edition allows you to break down data silos without having to move or replicate the data first. Database compatibility certification avoids application incompatibilities and allows you to update your SQL Server database not only locally, but also at the edge and in the cloud.
In terms of security and compliance, you also have integrated functions for classifying as well as protecting your data: SQL Server 2019 reliably monitors it and warns of suspicious activities.
Core-based licensing - described here - is also available for SQL Server 2019 Standard Edition, which is particularly attractive for larger companies or organizations with correspondingly more powerful servers and for which the server license/CAL variant is therefore not applicable.
At Wiresoft you will find the SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core Edition as fully functional used software at a significantly lower price compared to new software - offering all the known advantages in terms of functionality, performance and security. Detailed information on the new features of SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core as well as Microsoft's licensing terms for SQL Server software is provided in the following overview.
What's new in SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core? Comparison with the previous version of SQL Server 2019 Standard
Compared to its predecessor, the SQL Server 2019 Standard version is characterized not only by an expansion of functions and features and improved performance as well as better scalability, but also by the addition of a whole range of innovative functions - including new analysis tools that can also process and evaluate large volumes of data, as is typical for Big Data management, quickly and reliably so that they are comprehensively available for the respective company applications.
With SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core, you can now move your Big Data workloads into SQL Server - previously, only management on other Hadoop-based on-premises platforms was possible.
Similarly, external databases such as Oracle, Teradata, Mongo DB, HDFS as well as Azure Data Lake can now be queried using built-in connectors without having to physically move or replicate the data first.
Further, features such as intelligent query processing as well as accelerated database recovery are also available in SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core, providing a huge performance boost. More features are described in the overview below.
The innovative features of SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core at a glance
Among the particularly noteworthy features of SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core for comprehensive data processing, in addition to the clustering of data, is monitoring for its systematic collection during logging and measurements, as well as the intelligent processing of search queries. Big Data clusters in particular expand the use of data in many ways.
Data virtualization with Big Data Cluster
In particular, with the integration of Big Data clusters into SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core, a whole range of options are now available for using, analyzing and deploying large amounts of data:
- Big Data Clusters enables the deployment of scalable clusters of SQL Server, Spark and HDFS containers based on Kubernetes. These also run in parallel so that data from Transact-SQL or Spark can be read, written as well as processed simultaneously.
- SQL Server PolyBase allows querying data silos of external data sources without having to move or copy the data first.
- Data Lakes in SQL Server 2019 Standard: The scalable HDFS storage pool can be used to store Big Data from various external sources. After storing them as Big Data clusters, the data can be analyzed and also combined with relational data.
- Data Mart provides horizontal scaling of SQL Server Big Data clusters, improving performance for data analytics. This also allows data from multiple sources to be ingested via data pool nodes as a cache.
- AI and machine learning tasks can now be run on SQL Server Big Data clusters in HDFS storage pools.
- Spark and its integrated AI tools can be used with R, Python, Scala and Java, among others.
- App deployment allows applications to be deployed to SQL Server Big Data clusters as containers and apps in the form of web services. In doing so, these can access data stored in the Big Data cluster.
Improved performance SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core
For the scalability and performance of certain functions as well as high availability, the following are some of the specifications that apply to SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-Core Edition:
- Intelligent Database improves query performance with a number of database features, such as intelligent query processing, without requiring changes to applications. This includes delayed compilation of table variables as well as inlining of user-defined scalar functions and nested execution with table value functions.
- Several in-memory database features with in-memory OLTP1, hybrid buffer pool and buffer pool extension, and persistent memory support and memory-optimized tempdb metadata - improve performance for mission-critical workloads.
- Plus Higher scalability and performance withColumnstore, large object binaries in grouped columnstore indexes, in-memory database, and persistent memory support, Stretch Database, support for up to 50 instances, table and index partitioning, and data compression, parallel processing for partitioned tables and multiple filestream containers.
- High availability with Server Core support, log shipping, database mirroring and snapshot, backup compression, Always on-failover cluster instances, failover server for disaster recovery, and enhanced database recovery and encrypted backup.
- Always Encrypted not only protects sensitive customer data with secure enclaves, but also enables more complex operations to be performed on secure database columns. These also extend the trust boundary from client applications to the server side without SQL Server, operating system, databases, or a system administrator having access to them, making it possible to securely execute operations with sensitive data in plain text.
- Row-levelsecurity , with dynamic data masking, transparent database encryption and extensible key management, as well as data classification and monitoring and user-defined roles.

SQL Server 2019 Standard licensing by server cores
Core licensing, introduced with Microsoft's 2016 server release, is optionally available for the SQL Server 2019 Standard edition. Compared to older versions, where the number of cores of a processor was irrelevant for licensing, a different licensing metric now applies here: for core-based licensing, the number of cores forms the basis for determining the license requirement with the corresponding 2-core packages. Two cores can thus be licensed with one core license, unlike in the past where only one license was required per processor.
The total license requirement for a server thus results from its maximum number of cores, whereby each physical core of a server requires its own license. Basically, 8 licenses are set as the minimum per server; Microsoft has therefore defined the following conditions here:
- 1. Each physical processor is calculated with at least 8 cores.
- 2. Each physical server is calculated with at least 16 cores.
- 3. All physical and active cores are licensed according to conditions 1 and 2.
- 4. Core licenses for SQL Server 2019 Standard are always available in packs of 2.
Software and hardware requirements for running SQL Server 2019 Standard 2-core
