Save your time and cost on storages and get extra time to relax with this brand new stretch database concept within SQL Server 2016.
You can stretch your legs and relax and get a quick session on delivering your analytics against hot, warm & cold data. Stretch Database is the new concept, which allows you to stretch from on-prem to cloud easily. You can easily enable / disable data stretch, accessing data using stretch database, setup remote data archiving, basic concepts on enabling database/table and backup & restore for the stretch enabled databases.
Stretch DB also covers the concepts of Shallow & Deep backups. However, Deep backups are not supported with SQL Server 2016 CTP2.
