KB3011465 - FIX: Sequence object generates duplicate sequence values when SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014 is under memory pressure

When the instance is under memory pressure, and multiple concurrent connections request sequence values from the same sequence object, duplicate sequence values may be generated.
