Microsoft SQL Server code-named 'Denali' - CTP1
Wednesday morning I'll be giving a quick summary of all the new announcements from the 2010 PASS Summit in Seattle (courtesy of LobsterPot's on-the-spot reporters Rob and Roger) to the Adelaide leg of the PDC10 Roadshow.
In preparation for that, I did a quick search for any Denali titbits, and discovered the CTP is now publicly available. I'm downloading as we speak/type. Annoyingly, the Release Notes link is broken at the moment. Hopefully that gets fixed soon.
My top predictions for new features (seeing as I haven't got it installed yet to find out)
- Failover cluster support for Windows Phone 7
- Query optimiser support for X-Box 360 Kinect
Ha.. though actually I can see some possible use of Kinect with reporting and data mining in the future.. That would be cool.
Maybe they'd have to call that "Minority Report-ing Services"
