Microsoft announced the general availability of SQL Server IoT 2022

On January 1, 2023, Microsoft announced the general availability of SQL Server IoT 2022, the most Azure-enabled release of SQL Server yet, with continued innovation across performance, security, and availability.

SQL Server IoT 2022 is a core element of the Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform. The platform seamlessly integrates operational databases, analytics, and data governance. This enables customers to adapt in real-time, add layers of intelligence to their applications, unlock fast and predictive insights, and govern their data—wherever it resides.

New features of SQL Server 2022 IoT:

Link feature for Azure SQL Managed Instance

To ensure uptime, SQL Server 2022 is fully integrated with the new link feature in Azure SQL Managed Instance. With this new capability, you benefit from a PaaS environment applied to disaster recovery—allowing you to spend less time on setup and management even when compared to an IaaS environment. This works by using a built-in Distributed Availability Group (DAG) to replicate data to a previously deployed Azure SQL Managed Instance as a DR replica site.
Azure Synapse Link

Azure Synapse Link for SQL Server 2022 provides automatic change feeds to capture the changes within SQL Server and feed them into Azure Synapse Analytics. Synapse Link provides near real-time analysis and hybrid transactional and analytical processing with minimal impact on operational systems.

Microsoft Purview integration 

Microsoft Purview is a unified data governance and management service. SQL Server is also integrated with Microsoft Purview for greater data discovery, allowing you to break down data silos. Through this integration you will be able to:
  • Automatically scan your on-premises SQL Server for free to capture metadata.
  • Classify your data using built-in and custom classifiers and Microsoft Information Protection sensitivity labels.
  • Set up and control specific access rights to SQL Server.
