Help Make SQL Server “Denali” The Best Release Yet!

Help Make SQL Server “Denali” The Best Release Yet!

  • Comments 3

Bugs reported by the community have played a huge role in the amazing quality of past releases of SQL Server. In SQL Server 2008 we fixed over 1,000 bugs submitted by the SQL Server community prior to release. And in SQL Server 2008 R2 we fixed over 300 Community submitted bugs prior to the release.

Now is the time to test new features and send us feedback!

Download SQL Server "Denali" CTP3 - here!

Microsoft Connect is the place to submit bugs. This tool connects right into our bug tracking database, Team Foundation Server.

  • Looks great, now have it run on all OSs to FINISH Oracle once and for all.

  • Why is there such a focus on making SQL Server a file server??

  • FileTables remove a significant barrier to the use of SQL Server for the storage and management of unstructured data that is currently residing as files on file servers. Enterprises can move this data from file servers into FileTables to take advantage of integrated administration and services provided by SQL Server. At the same time, they can maintain Windows application compatibility for their existing Windows applications that see this data as files in the file system.
