Choices, choices: Using Unicode in SQL Server and Azure SQL Database

Community Manager
As businesses and applications reach global scale, you know that SQL Server and Azure SQL Database can support international applications using Unicode.

It depends – it’s all about knowing what’s there, and making informed choices when you design the database. SQL Server 2019 and Azure SQL Database introduce support for UTF-8 and with that, deliver on a decade old request – in this session, learn about what Unicode encoding you want to use for your scenario, what are the performance differences, and even debunk a few SQL Server myths along the way.
