What's new in SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core? The most important features of SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core at a glance
The Enterprise edition of SQL Server 2017 offers the maximum features and scalability available for this version. In addition to unlimited virtualization, it also provides advanced high availability with Always On availability groups, failover on multiple databases and readable secondary replicas, as well as Transparent Data Encryption and compatibility reporting via SQL Server Audit and Advanced Data Integration with fuzzy grouping including lookups, further also the creation of mobile reports and KPIs.
The additional Business Intelligence features include enhancements to multi-dimensional models, tabular models and data mining, as well as DirectQuery storage mode and access to the Power BI reporting server. With extensive integration of machine learning features, SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core offers full parallelism for R and Python analytics, including the ability to run both on GPUs as well.
In the areas described close below, the respective specifications apply to the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise 2-Core edition in terms of functionalities as well as their scalability, performance and high availability, among others:
New database engine features
SQL Server 2017 Enterprise includes three new enhancements in adaptive query processing: Adaptive Joints, batch mode memory allocation feedback, and overlapping execution of table value functions with multiple statements. New dynamic management lists, as well as automatic database optimization - which provides insight into query performance issues, suggests solutions, and automatically fixes identified problems - improve performance.
CLR assemblies can now be added to a list of trusted assemblies; further, new availability group functionality includes support for read scaling without clusters, setting minimum replicas for commit availability groups, and the ability to migrate across operating systems from Windows to Linux.
SQL Server Analysis Services
Among the important new features of SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) are the DAX editor for SSDT and optimizations to the tabular models, with improved object-level security when saving metadata; in addition, a tabular mode is proposed as the default installation option for Analysis Services. With Get Data, new data sources are available in Power Query; existing data sources are supported in M queries. Using Date Relationships, relationships based on date fields can be easily created.
SQL Server Integration Services
In SSIS the Scale Out function offers changed as well as new features, among others the execution of SSIS on multiple PCs has been simplified. Scale Out-Master now supports high availability, and the failover handling of the execution logs of Scale Out workers has also been improved. The feature also includes the Use32BitRuntime parameter to trigger execution, making it DABEI much easier to run SSIS on multiple computers. Furthermore, SSIS Catalog has another global property to specify the Standard mode when deploying SSIS packages and also supports SQL Server on Linux: SSIS packages can be executed on Linux via the command line.
SQL Server Reporting Services
Comments for reports are available in SSRS to add collaboration with other users, and attachments with user comments can be integrated.
In the Report Generator and SQL Server Data Tools, native DAX queries can be created for table data models supported by SQL Server Analysis Services.
SQL Server Master Data Services
In the MDS, a sorted list to entities, collections and hierarchies can be viewed via the explorer page, and performance has also been improved for deploying millions of rows.
SQL Server Machine Learning Services
In SQL Server 2017 release, the previous SQL Server R Services has been renamed to SQL Server Machine Learning Services as Python is now supported in addition to R programming language. The Machine Learning services can therefore be used to run Python or R scripts, to deploy R and Python models that do not require SQL Server, doing so can install the Microsoft Machine Learning-Server. Developers also have access to the ML and AI libraries for Python in the open source environment.
Users can now also use Linux to access the SQL Server, thereby, as with C++ applications, connecting to the SQL Server 2017 via the Open Database Connectivity Interface. Likewise, Java applications can also be used through the Java Database Connectivity driver.

Core-Licensing of SQL Server 2017 Enterprise
For the SQL Server 2017 Enterprise edition, only the Core licensing introduced by Microsoft with the 2016 Server version applies. The Server/CAL licensing available for other editions is therefore not available here. With Core-based licensing, a different licensing metric applies compared to older versions of SQL Server, where it was irrelevant how many cores a processor contained: Now their number is the basis for determining the license requirement. This licensing model based on cores also applies to hybrid use and to Cloud deployments.
In the case of Cloud-compliant licensing, one Core license is required for each of two cores. The total license requirement thus results from the maximum number of cores Pro processor. Each physical core of a server requires its own Core license. As minimum Pro Server always eight licenses are set, for this Microsoft defined the following conditions:
- For each processor at least 8Core licenses are required
- For each Server at least 16-Core-licenses are necessary
Core-Licenses for SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition are available as packages of 2.
