Hekaton: Why, What, and How

One of the release-defining features of SQL 14 is "Hekaton" SQL Server’s very high performance OLTP-optimized engine for memory-resident tables. While there are a number of main-memory relational database systems available today, Hekaton is truly unique in its design, its high degree of compatibility for legacy tools and applications, and its ease of use. Like Apollo, our column store engine, Hekaton is fully integrated into SQL Server. Getting started with Hekaton can be as simple as creating a "memory optimized" table and loading some rows into it.
