Next Release of SQL Server – Denali (SQL Server 2011)

Posted by decipherinfosys on February 23, 2011

MSFT had announced the first CTP of the next version of SQL Server at PASS last November.  Since then, there has been quite some buzz on the new features of the next version.  We were at a client site last week who had just now finished migrating to SQL Server 2008 and will be moving to SQL Server 2008 R2 shortly.  So, it was an interesting discussion with the CIO of the company who was putting together a presentation for the board of directors which showed the technology road-map for the company.  It becomes difficult to justify another migration in 2 years time (assuming they move to Denali in late 2012) unless there are key benefits to the business.

Here are some of the URLs to help you get up-to-speed on Denali:
