SQL Server “Denali”

November 9, 2010

Just finished watching the first keynote presentation from the SQL Server PASS Summit, including the announcement and demos of the next version of SQL Server currently code-named “Denali”. DBAs out there, hold onto your seatbelts, it’s going to be a heck of a ride. Live reports in a PPT slide deck? A completely new DR engine? Nifty cool.

Download it from Microsoft, here.

Okay, we got the sales pitch, took the test drive and we’re hooked … so how much will it cost?

(added) based on a couple of installations so far, the default install does not enable the TCP/IP protocol, meaning that Denali supports local connections only. To connect remotely, you need to enable TCP/IP using SQL Configuration Manager and then restart the SQL Server service.

It also appears from (very) limited testing that SQL Management Studio, even 2008 R2 version, does not connect to Denali properly.
