If you have an analytics-supporting SQL Server instance on a VM or bare metal, this is for you. Any large queries will get a massive speed-up. If you're using a DBaaS, then you would need to set up a proxy VM to see the benefits. If you have a transactional-only database, you won't likely see any benefits.
