Always Encrypted And Memory-Optimized Tables

Joey D’Antoni tests whether Always Encrypted works on memory-optimized tables in SQL Server 2016:

Last week was the PASS Summit, which is the biggest confab of SQL Server professionals on the planet (and educational as ever), Denny Cherry  (b|t) and I ran into Bob Ward (b|t) of Microsoft and of 500 level internals presentations. And for the first time ever, Bob asked us a question about SQL Server—of course we didn’t know the answer of the top of our heads, but we felt obligated to research it like we’ve made Bob do so many times. Anyone, the question came up a Bob’s internals session on Hekaton (In-Memory OLTP) and whether it supported the new Always Encrypted feature in SQL Server 2016. I checked books online, but could not find a clear answer, so I fired up SSMS and setup a quick demo.
