  • Changing the BI architecture. From Batch to Real-time, from Bulk Load to Message Processing

    Since SQL Server 2012, Database Mirroring (DBM) has been a deprecated feature meaning that it will be eventually removed in a future version of SQL Server.  It is still available in SQL Server 2016.  One of the best things about DBM is that it was a limited feature in Standard Edition since SQL Server 2005.
