Denali – the codename for next release of SQL Server
Posted by decipherinfosys on June 17, 2010
A reader had asked about “Denali”. It is the code name for the next release of SQL Server (SQL Server 2011?). The feature list or CTP information has not been released yet but you will see it’s name getting mentioned in forums and also on the connect.microsoft.com site by MSFT folks.
This is in keeping with the mountain theme – SQL Server 2008 R2 was codenamed Kilimanjaro and SQL Server 2005 was code named Yukon. Denali is a mountain located in Alaska and it means: “The great one”🙂
