Everybody interested in learning about what’s new in SQL Server 2012, today’s a good day because we’re releasing our second DRAFT preview of Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2012, by Ross Mistry and Stacia Misner. (Please remember that “draft” means we haven’t completed our editorial/production work on the content.) This version updates the two chapters that appeared in our first DRAFT preview release and adds four more chapters. It contains the boldfaced chapters below:


1. Denali Editions and Enhancements

2. High Availability and Disaster Recovery Enhancements

3. Scalability and Performance

4. Security Enhancements

5. Beyond Relational


6. Integration Services

7. Data Quality Services

8. Master Data Services

9. Analysis Services and PowerPivot

10. Reporting Services

This release is available in PDF only. In March, we’ll release the final, full, and, yes, free 10-chapter ebook in three formats: PDF, MOBI, and EPUB. We’ll let you know via this blog and @MicrosoftPress when the final release is available. Enjoy this one in the meantime, tell your friends and colleagues about it, and check back with us later for more.

By the way, Ross and Stacia also wrote Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, which is still available here as PDF and available here as EPUB and MOBI.
