I would like to have more replication scenarios.I would like to see native plugins built for other platforms versus having to buy third-party plugins to tap into S3 buckets and AWS Cloud. Right now, it does not have those built-in plugins.It would be nice if there was a feature to search for a specific value across multiple tables. This would save a lot of time for its users.Improvements to the indexing, columnstore indexing, and high availability groups are good improvements for future versions.Third-party services from Redgate should be built-in to it, like SQL Search.Debugging from the debugger tool functionality should be enhanced.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.Since we are a cloud-based company, there is AWS pricing on top of the SQL Server pricing. The Enterprise Edition can typically sell from around $1000 dollars a month, which is not cheap. Then, there is an additional one-time Windows cost, based on the code, which can go anywhere from $30,000 to $40,000 for the license.The setup cost is high, but it will return every penny.
