Code Names for SQL Server Releases

Posted by decipherinfosys on July 22, 2008

It was an interesting trip down the memory lane last night when we had a company meeting and were discussing code names for one of our products.  The code names for SQL Server releases came up and we thought we would post it on the blog to see how many people recognize them:

MSFT SQL Server Release     Project Code Name
SQL Server 2008                          Katmai
SQL Server 2005                          Yukon
SQL Server 2000 64 bit                Liberty
SQL Server 2000 32 bit                Shiloh
SQL Server 7.0                             Sphinx
SQL Server 6.5                             Hydra
SQL Server 6.0                             SQL95
