SQL Server 2016 Introduces Temporal Tables

SQL Server 2016, currently available for preview, introduces a new type of table, called a temporal table.

It also reduces the need for custom programming and third-party solutions that are often expensive to deploy and maintain and consume resources. The feature supports most column types and table features with some limitations, and most tables can be converted to a temporal table without impact to existing applications.
